Walnut Creek Veterinary Clinic offers in-hospital referrals to an internal medicine specialist who performs ultrasounds, endoscopic procedures and helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases.
An ultrasound is a powerful diagnostic tool that creates a real-time image of an animal’s body. This composite reveals important information about internal processes including the circulatory, skeletal and gastrointestinal systems, helping identify disease, blockages, and internal injury.
While these procedures are painless for your pet, most do require sedation and or anesthesia because the patient must remain completely still. Our anesthetists monitor every patient who undergoes anesthesia.
