We are currently unable to accept patients > 100 lbs for abdominal ultrasound. Due to rising costs we have added an additional fee for pets between 75 and 100 lbs.
Due to being out of office, our first available appointments are in late June. All urgent cases should be referred to the Animal Emergency and Specialty Center or UT College of Veterinary Medicine.
We are now requesting that all patients receive oral calming medications prior to imaging appointments unless contraindicated for your individual patient.
We have found oral calming medications significantly improve our patients’ comfort while lowering respiratory and heart rates. For medications and dosing we suggest trazodone, gabapentin, or a combination of both be administered PO the evening before and two hours prior to travel. We follow FearFree guidelines for Pre-Visit Pharmaceutical available here.
Please reach out if you have any questions or need assistance with referring a case. Thank you for entrusting us with your patient’s care.
