Ultrasound, or ultrasonography, is a non-invasive form of internal imaging. By using echoes, or reflections of ultrasound waves, our doctors and staff are able to view an image of tissues and internal organs. Ultrasound is an invaluable tool in veterinary medicine!

SWVH is proud to offer ultrasounds both to existing clients and referrals. Our ability to view exceptional quality images with both superficial and deep anatomy allows Dr. Rasmusson and Dr. Schroeder to observe not only major abdominal organs but smaller, finer structures as well. Applications for ultrasound imaging
