Three Ways Ultrasound Is Useful For Your Pet

Ultrasound is a safe, painless and useful technology in veterinary care. It's the same technology used to generate images during human pregnancy. In animal medicine it serves as an efficient way to visualize organs, which helps prevent the need for exploratory surgery. The veterinarian presses the ultrasound tool against the skin, where it sends high frequency waves to target areas such as the liver, or kidneys. Images are created when the transducer collects the sounds waves that bounce back.
