Understanding Pet Diagnostic Ultrasound

Pet diagnostic ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging technique used to evaluate your pet’s internal organs and tissues. At Marshfield Animal Hospital, we offer comprehensive diagnostic ultrasound services to help diagnose and monitor a variety of medical conditions in your furry companions.

How Pet Diagnostic Ultrasound Works

During a pet diagnostic ultrasound, high-frequency sound waves are transmitted into your pet’s body using a handheld probe. These sound waves bounce off internal structures and are then converted into images that can be viewed in real time on a monitor. This allows our veterinarians to visualize the size, shape, and texture of your pet’s organs, as well as detect any abnormalities or signs of disease.

Benefits of Pet Diagnostic Ultrasound


Pet diagnostic ultrasound is non-invasive and does not require anesthesia or sedation, making it safe for pets of all ages.


Ultrasound can be used to evaluate various organs, including the heart, liver, kidneys, bladder, and reproductive organs.

Accurate Diagnosis

Ultrasound provides detailed images that help our veterinarians accurately diagnose medical conditions such as tumors, cysts, inflammation, and fluid accumulation.

Guidance for Treatment

Ultrasound can also be used to guide procedures such as biopsies or fluid aspiration, allowing for precise targeting and improved treatment outcomes.

When to Consider Pet Diagnostic Ultrasound

Persistent Vomiting or Diarrhea: These symptoms may indicate gastrointestinal issues that can be evaluated with ultrasound.

Abnormalities Detected on Physical Exam: If your veterinarian detects abnormalities during a physical exam, ultrasound may be recommended to further evaluate the underlying cause.

Monitoring Chronic Conditions: Ultrasound can be used to monitor the progression of chronic conditions such as kidney disease or heart disease over time.
