THE AIM

The ultrasound applied to small animals is a non-invasive diagnostic tool very important that allows a view, in real time, internal organic structures, together with the results of the analytical tests and medical history, allows a more accurate approximation of its operation to determine if there is some kind of pathology or not.

THE RECOMMENDATIONS

On any ultrasound study, We recommend a fast food for a minimum of 8 a 10 hours, whenever possible,, except where otherwise noted, to be able to assess better the digestive system, how the cranial abdominal structures.

At the same time, retention of urine 3 a 4 hours It is necessary to, to be possible, to be able to assess better the urinary tract, how the reproductive tract, both in males, as in females.
