The Series Begins...
Veterinary ultrasound is a vitally important tool for the practitioner in the diagnosis, and sometimes treatment, of a variety of animal-related conditions. The veterinary species alludes to a wide range of animals, including the more traditional cats and dogs to horses, pigs and even chickens.
The use of veterinary ultrasound has been discussed in a number of articles that can be found here, but there are so many ways that veterinary ultrasound can be used that I have written a series of articles looking at this in more detail. These articles will be available to read over the next few weeks, and discuss Polycystic Kidney Disease in the cat, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia in the dog and the use of ultrasonography in diagnosing ovarian tumours in the chicken. All these conditions help to highlight the importance of veterinary ultrasound within the veterinary species.
