Every ultrasound at West Hills Animal Hospital & Emergency Center is performed by one of our specially-trained veterinarians using state-of-the-art equipment at our facility. Ultrasound is a safe, noninvasive, and painless procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce a real-time image of your dog or cat’s internal organs.
We use ultrasound for a variety of diagnostics to provide a better view of the internal organs such as the liver, spleen, kidneys, and lymph nodes. Ultrasound does not require any form of sedation, and can quickly help us identify and locate tumors, cysts, stones, and inflammation. Our veterinarians can also use ultrasound to visualize fetal heartbeats during pregnancy to ensure the proper development of your pet’s puppies or kittens.
