 Pet Ultrasound Scans and Imaging at Hilton Vets

Pet Ultra Sound Imaging 

An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your pet’s body. An ultrasound allows your Veterinarian to see problems within organs, vessels, and tissues without needing to go to surgery. Ultra sound is safe and painless and can be done without sedation most of the time.
