Ultrasound is a diagnostic modality that is non-invasive and painless, allowing your veterinarian to get a real-time view of your horses internal organs and tendons and ligaments. Utilizing some of the highest quality ultrasound technology available, our highly trained veterinarians can quickly gain critical information about your horse's condition.
Ultrasound is frequently used for the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal and soft-tissue injuries, during advanced lameness workups, colic evaluations, most internal medicine assessments, for breeding management, diagnosis of pregnancy, and cardiac imaging. Color flow doppler ultrasonography is a type of ultrasonography used by our specialist veterinarians to assess direction and turbulence of blood flow. It can be useful in the assessment of cardiac abnormalities, vascular diseases or anomalies or during evaluations of fetal health.
