Ultrasound Imaging

Echocardiogram and Abdominal


An echo is an ultrasound study of the heart.  This shows how the blood moves through the big vessels and chambers of the heart to identify and monitor heart disease.  Echos are recommended for pets with heart murmurs, canine athletes, and breeds of pets that are susceptible to heart disease.
