Cat & Dog Ultrasound
When X-ray images prove insufficient for a proper diagnosis, we may employ cat or dog ultrasound to get the information we need. Like X-ray, ultrasound is a safe and painless procedure. Unlike X-ray, ultrasound uses sound waves instead of X-rays to create images of the internal organs. Another important distinction is that ultrasound shows us a moving, real-time image of the organs, so we can better discern their size, shape, and blood supply.
For dogs and cats, we often use ultrasound imaging to assist in diagnosing:
- Bladder stones and gallstones
- Masses and cysts
- Abnormal organ enlargement
- And more
Additionally, we can use ultrasound to obtain a fine-needle aspirate (FNA) from a mass or lesion, and more effectively drain fluid from the abdominal cavity or chest cavity.
We have been bringing our pets here since the 1970's and would never think of going anywhere else. The staff is so compassionate and caring for both the animals and their families.
Wonderful staff! Excellent service all the way around! Most of all our Murray loves going there! Highly recommended!
Levan Road Veterinary Hospital has the area's best vets and staff around (the Livonia area). I would highly recommend this practice to my friends and anyone else who needs a caring staff for their beloved pets
Dr. Fleming and the staff are SO Wonderful. Such caring and compassionate. We had to put our beloved fur-baby to sleep and they stayed open late so our family could come say good-bye.
I have been taking my dogs to Levan Vet for 19 years now. The staff is very caring and friendly. It is obvious how much they care about the animals they are treating.
