Fremantle Animal Hospital is fully equipped with an ultrasound machine to use in diagnostic and treatment procedures.
Ultrasound is a very important tool to help us diagnose diseases in animals, particularly for conditions involving soft tissues such as the heart and other organs. Ultrasound howver cannot be used to examine bones or air filled organs such as the lungs.
Ultrasound can be used in procedures such as;
- Ultrasound guided fine needle aspirates and cytocentesis
- Checking for abnormalities in organs such as the liver and kidneys
- Confirming pregnancies and puppy number estimates
- Check the function of the heart
