If your pet is going through severe pain, perhaps caused by kidney stones or some form of internal bleeding, an ultrasound would be one of the things your veterinarian would recommend.
Ultrasound machines use ultrasonic vibrations to provide vital information about internal organs. Many veterinary facilities are not equipped with an in-house ultrasound machine. So patients have to get ultrasound done at a third party lab. But at Castro Valley Animal Hospital, your and your pet's convenience is our highest priority. Therefore we have invested in our own ultrasound machine so we can do all the necessary scans in-house right here at our hospital.
