The Right Diagnosis with An Ultrasound
When your pet isn't feeling well, it is important to find out what the problem is as soon as possible. Sometimes, diagnosing the situation doesn't take more than some basic visual inspections. However, other situations require examining the inside of your pet. X-rays help finding issues but not for everything. That is why it is necessary to use an ultrasound on your pet. Not all vet hospitals have this level of technology in-house, but at Jane Animal Hospital, we are fully equipped to help your pet any way we can. With our ultrasound equipment on hand, we can provide you with the kinds of exam services other Toronto animal hospitals cannot.
In order to provide you with a proper pet diagnosis you will want the most advanced equipment at your disposal. Many vets rely on their hands during a physical examination. While this can prove beneficial, there are some issues that can't be identified through a hands-on exam alone. Some blood work might be needed, but even that can take some time. With an ultrasound, we can effectively get to the bottom of what is going on with your pet fast. If your pet is able to sit still, then anesthesia is not needed. However, if they do not cooperate, then we may need to give them a safe amount of anesthesia.
A Faster Diagnosis
There may come a situation where there is a limited window of optimal time to help your pet’s situation. When this is the case, you need answers right away. With our equipment, we can take a look at the inside of your pet to see what the problem is as soon as possible. X-rays only go so far and are not optimal for certain conditions. So, if your pet is suffering or you are not fully sure why they are behaving strange, then come see our team for help. We may need to shave a small patch on your pet for the ultrasound probe to make contact with the skin.
