Our clinicians use ultrasound extensively for reproductive work and to diagnose a variety of injuries and conditions. Our team has received specialized training in both performing ultrasounds and interpreting results. Ultrasound allows us to look at different internal organs to examine their health, identify any underlying diseases, take ultrasound-guided diagnostic samples, and monitor the recovery of a sick or injured horse.

Used in our lameness and sports medicine practice, the modality can help us identify abnormalities of tendons, ligaments, and joints. As an internal medicine diagnostic tool, we use ultrasound to image horses’ internal organs, including kidneys, liver, spleen, intestines, and heart. It’s also used to image the ovaries and uterus and to confirm and monitor pregnancies.

A Message From Bend Equine Medical Center To Our Small Animal Division Clients

You and your pets are close to our hearts and we are honored you trusted us with their care over the past decade. Please contact us to have your pets' records transferred to your new small animal veterinarian.
