In addition to providing state-of-the-art x-ray technology for diagnostic purposes, Gulf Coast Veterinary Hospital also utilizes ultrasound as a diagnostic tool. Ultrasound is a high frequency sound beam that is transmitted through the soft tissue and returns images of internal organs and cardiovascular structures.
Our veterinary staff is able to evaluate your pets:
- Cardiovascular system
- Tumor identification
Ultrasound is a very safe, noninvasive procedure done in our office. Radiation levels are very low and the rubbing motion of the probe on your pet may actually relax them during the examination. Results are immediate, which means diagnosis, prognosis and treatment are usually known by the time you and your pet leave our office.
