Ultrasound is a very helpful diagnostic tool to assess soft tissues, and it complements our radiographs to help us finalize a diagnosis.  Dr. Gough and Dr. Velianou are our veterinary ultrasonographers and can skillfully perform abdominal ultrasounds, assessing liver, kidneys, pancreas, spleen, and bladder.  Bladder stones, pancreatitis, kidney infections and intestinal tumors, to name a few, are all diseases that are best diagnosed using an ultrasound, so we are lucky to have this hi-tech piece of equipment available to us in our practice.
