Painted Sky Veterinary Services is proud to announce that we have added to ultrasound to our diagnostic capabilities and services.
Ultrasound is the use of sound waves to visualize organs inside the body. It a great diagnostic tool in evaluating the heart and the abdomen. We can also use ultrasound to obtain tissue samples which previously required surgery.
Ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure. Your pet will have its belly shaved so the ultrasound picture is clear.
Our hospital utilizes our own ultrasound machine for FAST scans and to obtain sterile urine samples. When more complex cases come in to the hospital we utilize Dr. Jean Jarvis from Medical Imaging. She has years of ultrasonography experience and visits the hospital on an on-call basis.
If you have any questions about this service, please contact us at 715-268-8131 for more information.
