Pet Ultrasounds in Franklin Lakes
A Safe & Effective Diagnostic Tool
An ultrasound is a form of diagnostic imaging that uses sound waves to create an image – called a sonogram – of the inside of the body. Ultrasounds are safe and radiation-free, so they are harmless for people and animals alike.
At Franklin Lakes Animal Hospital, we use a state-of-the-art ultrasound machine to look for problems in your pet’s abdomen. Your pet will be comfortable and relaxed through the procedure, which is quick and painless.

When to Use Ultrasound for Your Pet
We might recommend an ultrasound for your furry friend in a variety of situations. Because they do not use radiation, ultrasounds are exceptionally safe. They are useful in diagnosing many conditions and getting a clearer picture of your pet’s health.
With an ultrasound, we can assess the:
- Intestinal tract
Through an ultrasound, we are able to examine internal organs carefully and determine whether any lumps are tumors. Ultrasound are helpful in diagnosing problems with muscles, tendons, blood vessels, joints, and soft tissues.
Ultrasound is also useful in detecting pregnancies early on and monitoring fetal progress later. The procedure is non-invasive and rarely requires sedation. Our skilled veterinarians and veterinary team will read your pet’s results and determine the best course of action.
While we do offer x-ray services, ultrasound technology is often better for diagnosing many conditions. If you have any concerns, be sure to talk to your vet about which service is best for your pet.
