Dog ultrasound is one of the many tools used to help diagnose cancer. Best of all? It’s painless!


Veterinarian Adrienne Anderson explains how ultrasound for dogs works, when it is used, and where you can get it done with your dog. This “stellar diagnostic” lets your vet see what is going on inside your dog’s abdomen and heart in real time, without requiring sedation or surgery.
