At the Animal Clinic of Millville, we now have ultrasound capability. What is an Ultrasound?

It’s a pain-free, totally non-invasive technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce a real-time image of your pet’s internal organs.

Often considered more exact than x-rays, ultrasound provides images of what is happening inside your pet’s body.

Ultrasound is used for a wide range of diagnostic procedures. It’s particularly useful in viewing your pet’s abdominal organs including the spleen, kidneys, liver, and gallbladder.

Ultrasound is also useful in evaluating heart function, bladder and looking for disease in the prostate, testicles and mammary glands.

Dr. Gorman may recommend an ultrasound because your pet is experiencing abdominal symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal distension, straining to urinate or urinating blood.
