Ultrasound

Virgin Valley Veterinary Hospital is pleased to offer ultrasound examinations among its diagnostic services. This sets our clinic apart from others because not only can we confirm certain x-ray findings such as enlarged organs or cancerous tumors, we can closely evaluate the function of the major organs.

An ultrasound is a type of high frequency wave that is emitted from a machine in pulses. These pulses will “echo” back to the machine and the echoes form a picture. As a result of an ultrasound exam, our veterinarians can identify tissue texture, cystic formations, solid masses, organ size, vascular functions and fetal examinations.

Virgin Valley Veterinary Hospital performs their own ultrasound examinations, meaning that if your pet needs this exam for a full diagnosis we do not need to wait for a contract company to come in to complete the ultrasound. Your pet will receive immediate and accurate care rather than having to wait for an appointment at a later date.
