Ultrasound & Echocardiograms


Quick diagnosis without invasive or painful procedures

Ultrasound is a powerful diagnostic tool that uses sound waves to form images of internal organs. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, does not use radiation and allows quick diagnosis. We use ultrasound to:

  • Detect and diagnose cancer
  • Evaluate abdominal pain
  • Evaluate vascular issues and abdominal bleeding
  • Evaluate gastrointestinal issues including vomiting and diarrhea
  • Evaluate the urinary tract for infection or stones
  • Determine the extent and spread of disease

An echocardiogram is a type of ultrasound test used to evaluate heart size and function, and for diagnosing and managing cardiac disease. Our visiting cardiology specialists perform this procedure in our hospital.

I discovered Rivertown Animal Hospital when my cat needed an ultrasound, and soon! I called the clinic and they fit me in first thing the next morning.
