Ultrasound is a quick, safe, non-invasive procedure that provides a large amount of diagnostic information. Hope’s Ultrasound department provides outpatient scans to give primary veterinarians and specialists information about their patient and to help make the best choice for further care. Ultrasounds are performed by a board-certified veterinary internal medicine specialist utilizing advanced ultrasonography equipment.
