Using ultrasound for diagnostic imaging has several benefits for small animals, such as dogs, cats, and other pets. By taking images of the dog or cat, vets can better decipher the problem and find reliable, fast solutions for a wide range of veterinary clinical needs.
Through the right ultrasound equipment and transducers, you can conduct examinations for reproductive, abdominal, cardiac, oncological, and more. Other applications for a small animal ultrasound include:
The veterinary ultrasound transducer (probe) is an essential part of the system you use. Many ultrasounds include a list of compatible probes, but it’s important to understand the different types of probes, and why they’re necessary for the types of scans you need to take.
