Ultrasound is the best, non-painful, non-invasive way to evaluate soft tissues and fluid-filled organs in the body of pets. This includes an examination of the kidney, testicles, prostate, heart, liver, spleen, intestinal tract, uterus, eyes, and pancreas. It produces images of structure in the body and helps in the diagnostic process.
Aloropi Vet Center offers dog and cat ultrasound services in Sharjah. Whether you’re looking for a pregnancy test or want to find out the root of a specific problem – We have the most advanced machinery to carry out a real-time examination.
Ultrasound is very helpful to identify and diagnose health issues in cats and dogs. It is a painless procedure that uses High-Frequency Sound Waves (HFSW) to produce images of the pet organs.
A specific level of sound waves is aimed at the body of the host. Some are absorbed by the tissues while others bounce back. The waves that bounce back are measured by a special machine that produces an image of a specific body area. This special machine is an ultrasound machine that produces live images within seconds.
Following the examination, the results are shared with your veterinarian for further consultation. Some general indications are given during the examination, but the final results are shared by your specialist. Normally, there’s no after-care guideline. Just give your pet something to eat, because they will be probably hungry.
One of the best parts of ultrasound is that you can check the examination report in real-time. The images are displayed on the screen as well as available in photographs. In some cases, the images are sent over to a veterinarian for further consultation. If this happens, the result depends on how many days the vet takes to progress the report. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
