Setting Up an Ultrasound
You will set up an intake appointment for the day of the ultrasound where a technician will go over all the paperwork and obtain your %50 deposit. YOU WILL NEED TO WITH-HOLD FOOD AFTER 12PM THE NIGHT BEFORE YOUR PET’S APPOINTMENT. Water is allowed until you leave for your appointment, but please do not let your pet urinate after leaving for your appointment. These procedures are vital to the ultrasound exam and allow for higher quality images and more accurate diagnoses. Also, in some cases, sedation may be required for your pets comfort for further diagnostic testing.
Dr. Tomes will call you once the ultrasound exam is finished and go over his findings and recommendations, and you will set up a discharge appointment to pick up your pet. Your primary care veterinarian should also follow up with you.
Your pet will have been shaved for the ultrasound. The fur will grow back over the next couple of months.
