A non-invasive way to diagnose sick & injured pets.
We offer veterinary ultrasounds for pets through a mobile veterinarian. Our mobile veterinarian is available select days at our Marietta location. Much like ultrasound for people, pet ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive imaging technique used to diagnose sick and injured animals.
How does ultrasound work?
When the sound waves penetrate the body, they “bounce” back. The ultrasound machine measures the time it takes for a sound wave to bounce back and creates an image.
What conditions can be diagnosed by ultrasound?
Some injuries and conditions that can be identified via ultrasound include:
- Bladder and kidney stones
- Gastrointestinal obstructions
- Cysts and tumors
- Heart conditions
Ultrasound also allows us to safely collect biopsy and fluid samples without having to perform invasive surgeries.
If you have an ultrasound scheduled with us
You will receive a phone call from us the day before to confirm the exact timing of the ultrasound. *PLEASE disregard emails or text you receive with a different time it is for our office use only.
**Please call us if you wish to cancel or reschedule this appointment. There is a $50 no show fee because Dr. Fernandez is coming solely for you and your pet.
DROP OFF - You have the option to drop off your pet between 8:30-9am the morning of the ultrasound and we can call you when your pet is available for pick up.
CALL AHEAD - Another option is we can call you when Dr. Fernandez is 15 minutes away and you can head over to the clinic and wait for the ultrasound to take place. You will know the night before the window of time to be by your phone.
As a reminder: Withhold all food and treats the morning of the ultrasound. Water is okay.
If your pet is showing signs of illness or injury, call us at (770) 992-8787 to schedule an appointment. An ultrasound may be able to assist in diagnosing the problem.
