COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – an update for our clients.

State-of-the-art ultrasound diagnostics

Our facilities include state-of-the-art ultrasound machines for the safe and speedy examination of internal cavities and organs. All vets at our Poole surgeries are all fully trained in ultrasound diagnosis.

 

How does ultrasound work?

Ultrasound uses sound waves to create black & white images that allow our vets to look inside living organs like the heart, liver, kidneys and bladder.

This is a totally safe and non-invasive way for us to see what’s going on inside your pet in more detail to help us diagnose health problems. Results are available immediately, which helps us to make a speedy diagnosis.

Gentle Diagnosis of Internal Problems

Ultrasound scans are usually performed on conscious animals but we occasionally use light sedation if appropriate. In some cases, the ultrasound can be used to assist in the taking of needle biopsies of internal organs. Ultrasound is also commonly used during pet pregnancy and to check for bladder stones.

We also use digital x-ray to help us diagnose certain pet health conditions.
