Glendale is very proud to offer in-house ultrasound exams.
To offer you and your pet the best service, we capture images of your pet’s scan and send those away to a specialist, who sends us a diagnosis within 24 hours. Hospitals that do not have an ultrasound machine would need to refer their patients to a specialty hospital or would have to have a travelling ultrasonographer come to their clinic and patient. This could potentially take days. We don’t want your best friend to have to wait that long.
Ultrasound is an accurate and reliable tool used to assist in evaluating and diagnosing your pet's health concerns. The added bonus is that it is a non-invasive procedure that is easy to perform with very little patient risk or discomfort. It also gives the doctor the ability to obtain diagnostic samples without major surgery. Dr. Hooper and our technicians have been trained on performing a complete ultrasound scan.
