Ultrasound

Having received advanced training in ultrasonography, Dr. Bestic can provide complete and thorough abdominal and cardiac scans. Although exploratory surgical biopsies may be necessary, we provide ultrasonic guided biopsies as a less invasive alternative. Our veterinary hospital also uses the ultrasound when collecting urine samples to avoid damaging any internal organs. This allows for the safest collection of urine and the most sterile sample to provide to the lab for urinary culture. Some of the other benefits include:

  • Identifying retinal detachments in the eyes
  • Finding adrenal tumors and liver shunts
  • Locating foreign bodies and stones within the bladder or GI tract
  • Collecting fluid from the chest or abdomen for cytology
  • Evaluating normal heart function and anatomy
