Scheduling Routine Appointments
The veterinary staff or owner may call or fax to schedule a procedure. Faxing over a Referral Form completed by the veterinarian in charge will help ensure that we are aware of the pertinent details for each case.
While appointments should be made several days in advance, critical cases will be accommodated as soon as possible.
Scheduling Emergency Cases
We make every attempt to squeeze in emergency procedures during regular office hours. An additional emergency fee may be applied if the emergency significantly affects the day's scheduled procedures. However, emergency scans are often available during off-hours and weekends. Every measure available will be taken to ensure that emergency situations are seen to as soon as possible. Your pet's health and comfort are our absolute top priority.
Your Office Visit
You will be able to sit with your pet throughout the ultrasound. Anesthesia is not necessary for a routine scan. The ultrasound procedure is non-invasive and causes no pain to the patient.
You will receive a complete explanation of the procedure, detailing the findings and the significance of those findings, as well as recommendations for treatment. The expected lengths of the office visits normally are:
Sonogram or Echocardiogram, 30 to 45 minutes
Pregnancy sonogram, 15 minutes
Ultrasound-guided biopsy and endoscopic procedures, 60 to 90 minutes
A copy of the report is faxed to your veterinarian and is also made available to you, either at the conclusion of the office visit or by mail or email within 24 hours. Copies of the report may by forwarded to other facilities if requested.
