Ultrasound

Starkville Veterinary Hospital offers pet owners in Starkville, Louisville and Columbus, Mississippi an array of the latest diagnostic tools available in veterinary medicine so that we can provide excellence in pet healthcare for your companion pets.

Ultrasound is an extremely useful, non-invasive diagnostic procedure that produces clear, easy to read images that are more detailed than an x-ray. An ultrasound uses high frequency soundwaves to create a moving picture of your pet's internal organs.

The ultrasound procedure is particularly useful in examining abdominal organs, diagnosing cardiac problems, and finding bladder and kidney stones. We use the latest ultrasound technology to provide full abdominal evaluations, including guided fine-needle aspiration of soft tissues and the bladder. Additionally, for pregnant patients, ultrasound is an excellent tool for evaluating and examining the health of the litter and the mother.
