At Rocky Mountain Veterinary Ultrasound, we provide imaging services for your pet. Vets use these images to make a diagnosis or to investigate the healing process. If your veterinarian recommends ultrasound for your pet, come to our Steamboat Springs clinic for caring staff who will make the process easy for you and your pet.
How Our Veterinary Services Work
If you have a vet who works with us and recommends an ultrasound, Dr. Kim Radway will come to the vet's clinic to do the procedure. Dr. Radway will also interpret the findings and report back to your vet. Your regular vet will then tell you about the results and make decisions based on what Dr. Radway saw on the imaging.
Thanks to the ability to use ultrasound to painlessly look inside your pet's abdomen, vets don't have to conduct exploratory surgery to find problems. With an abdominal ultrasound, we can spot problems such as tumors, pregnancy, and obstructions in the digestive tract. If your pet has a problem with its kidneys, liver, bladder, spleen, or gallbladder, we can take a look to see if these organs have visible defects or concerns.
An echocardiogram looks at your pet's heart. This imaging test does not cause pain, and it allows Dr. Radway to see your pet's heart chambers, walls, valves, and the ability to pump. With every echocardiogram, we will also perform an electrocardiogram, which measures the electrical activity of your pet's heart. This information will give Dr. Radway more information to properly interpret the findings of the echocardiogram.
If your pet needs just an electrocardiogram to measure only its heart rate and electrical activity, you can also have us do that procedure for a nominal charge if you don't have an accompanying echocardiogram.
If your pet has orthopedic problems, your veterinarian may recommend musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging. This imaging method can help your vet to diagnose injuries or illnesses in your pet's joints. Ultrasound can help to determine if your pet needs surgery or another treatment method for its joint problems.
If your vet wants to take a tissue sample, your pet may need ultrasound sampling. This procedure uses ultrasound technology to help guide the needle to the desired location to take a sample for biopsy. Such a sampling technique is not as invasive as taking samples from surgery. Using ultrasound also makes it easier to get a more accurate sample from the correct site.
