It’s completely safe, pain-free, and a powerful diagnostic tool

A canine patient at Westside Veterinary Hospital in Marietta, GA, receives an ultrasound examination.

At Westside Veterinary Hospital, our veterinarians can tell a lot about your pet’s health and condition by performing a hands-on examination.

In many instances, though, they need to look a bit deeper. With ultrasound technology, we can peer deep inside your pet’s body to examine fluid-filled organs in great detail. Unlike x-ray, ultrasound does not expose your pet to radiation. Instead, this technology uses soundwaves to capture detailed images. It’s completely safe, pain-free, and a powerful diagnostic tool. If your pet needs an ultrasound in Marietta or the surrounding areas, we’d be thrilled to help!

How Ultrasound Works

We take ultrasounds when we need to examine a patient’s liver, kidneys, heart, spleen, lymph nodes, intestinal tract, reproductive organs, eyes, or pancreas. This technology allows us to diagnose several health problems, including masses, cysts, abscesses, and nodules. 

During an exam, we use a small handheld device to transmit sound waves into the body. The echoes that bounce back to the probe are then recorded and translated into an image. The machine instantly creates pictures and gives us a real-time view of what’s happening inside a pet’s body.
