Radiology and Ultrasound
Every treatment plan we formulate begins with a physical exam performed by one of our Veterinarians. There are times when those exams clearly indicate that we need more information. That’s when we turn to X-rays to help formulate a clear diagnosis. Some examples of symptoms that may necessitate the use of Radiology are:
- Difficult Urination
- Loss of Appetite
- Shortness of Breath
At Bayshore Veterinary Hospital, the use of digital X-rays allows us to view results immediately, meaning less time on the X-ray table and decreased stress for our patient. Our doctors are able to display results on our computer screens and share their findings with you during your office visit.
Ultrasound technology gives us a more comprehensive view of organs like the heart allowing us to assess function and blood flow when cardiac disease is suspected. It’s also used to assess abdominal organs like the liver, bladder, and kidneys and is particularly valuable in early diagnosis and pre-operative evaluation.
