Heart of Chelsea Veterinary Group is proud to offer in-house ultrasonography services. Pet ultrasounds give our veterinary staff moving images of the body’s internal structures to evaluate internal organs and assess for any fluid accumulation. It promotes the detection of abnormalities that may not be palpable during the physical exam.
One of the key elements of our diagnostic imaging and ultrasound services is our use of Versana Active ultrasound machines. These machines are at the forefront of veterinary ultrasound technology, and they allow us to provide highly detailed and accurate images of your pet's internal organs and structures. This allows us to quickly and accurately diagnose a wide range of conditions including tumors or enlarged organs, heart conditions, bladder and kidney stones.
In the event your pet has an illness, our experienced veterinarians will create an individualized treatment plan for your pet, which may include more frequent scans to monitor disease progression.
In addition to our on site services, Heart of Chelsea coordinates weekly with specialist doctors to provide echocardiograms and comprehensive abdominal ultrasounds.
Echocardiograms, or heart ultrasounds, are a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary care. They provide detailed images of the heart and its valves, allowing for the detection of various cardiac conditions. They are non-invasive, can be done on conscious animals, and are useful for monitoring treatment effectiveness over time. Echocardiograms are a valuable tool in veterinary care, allowing for early detection and effective management of cardiac conditions in animals. Our echocardiograms are performed and reviewed by a board-certified cardiologist.
A comprehensive abdominal ultrasound is a detailed examination of the internal organs of the abdominal cavity, unlike regular ultrasound which only examines one specific area. This type of ultrasound identifies potential issues or abnormalities in multiple organs at the same time, providing a more complete picture of the animal's health. It is particularly useful for animals with multiple health concerns or for those that are aging, as it allows for early detection of potential problems and a comprehensive treatment plan.
