Seeing under the skin–that’s what’s possible with ultrasound technology. Ultrasound is a powerful diagnostic tool that creates a real-time internal image of an animal’s body, giving us important information about the circulatory, skeletal and gastrointestinal systems.

When used in conjunction with other diagnostic tools like X-rays, ultrasounds can help identify disease, blockages, skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage and other internal injuries. Because ultrasounds don’t require radiation, they’re also used to monitor pregnancies and fetal health in breeding pets.

An ultrasound works by broadcasting high-frequency sound waves that reflect off your pet’s internal structures. A small probe held against the skin collects the returning signals to create an image of the internal body, most commonly used to examine abdominal organs like the stomach, kidneys, liver, spleen and gallbladder. Completely painless and non-invasive, ultrasounds sometimes require some sedation because the patient must remain still without panting or movement that might affect image quality.

We offer the following ultrasound services:

  • Abdominal Ultrasound
  • Thoracic Ultrasound
  • Cervical Ultrasound
  • Pregnancy Ultrasound
  • Ultrasound-Guided Fine Needle Aspirate and Cytologies
  • Ultrasound-Guided Pericardiocentesis and Cavity Centesis (fluid removal)
  • Ultrasound-Guided Cystocentesis and Cultures

East Tennessee Veterinary Ultrasound employs advanced imaging technologies operated by Dr. Laura Bacon, with the ability to share our studies with specialists in cardiology and radiology, guaranteeing the highest quality of care for our patients.
