An ultrasound is a painless procedure, there is little-to-zero discomfort during these examinations. In many cases, your pet’s hair may need to be shaved to allow for the best picture quality as ultrasounds are not transmitted through the air.
During the scan a water-based gel is applied is gently placed on the area that is to be examined, and a transducer probe is utilised. A sedative is not usually necessary; however, it may be used for pets that are unable to stay still.
