If your pet is in need of an ultrasound, digital X-rays, or an EKG (echocardiogram) we can refer you to Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine in North Haven. An ultrasound involves safely, non-invasively examining your pet’s internal organs. The ultrasound produces a 3D image of your pet in real time using sound waves. This allows the shape and size of the organs to be evaluated, aiding in the detection of masses and pregnancy, among other conditions. An EKG (echocardiogram) involves assessing heart health, also using ultrasound waves.
During your pet’s X-ray exam, he will be evaluated by a board-certified radiologist. X-rays allow for an internal examination of your pet for the detection of fractures, foreign bodies, and more. Because the X-ray images are produced digitally, they can be easily displayed and enhanced on a computer monitor. They can also be shared via email.
