Ultrasound & Endoscopy
Ultrasound is a powerful diagnostic tool that creates a real-time internal image of an animal’s body, giving us important information about the circulatory, gastrointestinal, and other systems.
When used in conjunction with other diagnostic tools like X-rays, ultrasounds can help identify disease, blockages, soft tissue damage, and other internal injuries. Because ultrasounds don’t require radiation, they’re also used to monitor pregnancies and fetal health in breeding pets.
There are many conditions that need specialized equipment such as ultrasound or endoscopy for a true diagnosis to be reached. Here at Stanley Veterinary Clinic, we are able to offer such services. We have a state-of-theart Oncura ultrasound system, the easy-to-use touch screen of this system allows us to perform complete, quick, high-quality ultrasounds. We have the ability to send all images and videos to a board-certified radiologist or internal medicine specialist who can then give us full reports that include
further recommendations for your pet’s care!
We also commonly use ultrasound to check for bladder stones, and fluid in the chest or abdomen, look for fetal heartbeats, and check for many other conditions that may only require a brief scan.
Stanley Veterinary Clinic has two trained veterinarians that can perform your pet’s ultrasound or echocardiogram. Give us a call to set up a consultation for your pet today!

What is Endoscopy?
Endoscopy is a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure that uses a flexible tube with a camera and light source to visualize the inside of your pet’s body. This procedure allows us to examine internal organs and can be used to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions. Endoscopy is minimally invasive, which means it can often be performed with less discomfort and a faster recovery time than traditional surgery.
