We have a state of the art in-house ultrasound machine at Capitola Veterinary Hospital. Ultrasound is a non-invasive, cutting edge technology that uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs. This advanced medical tool can be used to diagnose and assist in the treatment of a wide variety of conditions. Ultrasound has the advantage of being able to look at the inside of organs and is able to diagnose many problems much sooner than X-rays. Pregnancy exams are also available using an ultrasound machine.
