Advanced imaging technology is invaluable when it comes to providing a fast and accurate diagnosis; which in turn leads to a better prognosis and a faster recovery. Our portable ultrasound machine employs non-invasive technology which is ideal for examining your pet’s gastrointestinal system for blockages as well as for scanning vital organs such as kidneys, spleen, heart, liver and the abdominal cavity.
