Veterinary Ultrasound Specialists
At 911 VETS®, we’re proud to offer the best mobile veterinary services throughout Los Angeles, including imaging and ultrasound exams. These are excellent medical procedures that can be used to look inside your pet’s body without having to perform invasive surgery. Ultrasound procedures can be performed for many reasons when it comes to your dog or cat. When our experienced veterinarians visit your home, we’ll conduct a thorough examination of your pet before recommending the best medical solution for them. We may request that your pet receive an ultrasound for one of the following reasons:
- Abdominal blood work
- Vomiting or diarrhea that will not subside
- Weight loss with little to no change in eating habits
- A negative change in urinary habits
- Chronic infections
- Cancer staging
Pet Imaging & Ultrasounds in Los Angeles
Our veterinarians utilize the latest and safest ultrasound and imaging techniques to ensure your pet is comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Ultrasounds allow our veterinarians to examine the internal organs of your pet. These procedures are often performed on a padded lift-table where a water-based gel is applied to the area that is being examined. Our vets will carefully examine your pet with the help of an ultrasound transducer by gently moving it back and forth along your pet’s skin.
Once the exam has been completed, we’ll sit down with you to discuss your pet’s results. If we notice an abnormality in your dog or cat, we’ll discuss the best veterinary solution for your furry friend. Some common ultrasound diagnoses include:
Masses in the Abdomen
If our veterinarians notice a growth or abnormality in your pet’s abdomen, they likely have a mass. An ultrasound can help us decipher which organs are being affected and if surgery is the best course of action. These days, an ultrasound is one of the best ways to prevent your pet from having surgery down the line.
Bladder & Kidney Infections
If your pet is having problems urinating or is experiencing recurrent infections, they could be suffering from a bladder or kidney infection. An ultrasound is a great way to rule out tumors in your pet as well.
