Top Reasons Why DVMs Should Have a Veterinary Ultrasound In House

When clients bring their pet into a veterinary clinic, they expect an efficient process with accurate results and an explanation of the treatment process. As DVMs know, it can be tough to give a correct diagnosis without ultrasound equipment.

 Ultrasound imaging provides a real-time, accurate diagnosis of an animal’s medical issues.

 Today’s veterinary ultrasound equipment is versatile, and you can use it on most parts of an animal’s body. Let’s look at some of the benefits you and your veterinary clinic receive when you invest in an in-house ultrasound.

Diagnose Problems Quicker

Bringing ultrasound equipment in-house allows you to diagnose illnesses and conditions quickly. Typically, referring to a specialist or even bringing one in to conduct the scan can mean waiting for days or weeks. With an ultrasound, you can save time waiting for results and inform your client of any medical conditions their pet is suffering.

 Ultrasound systems provide unique information from x-rays, allowing you to garner additional diagnoses that you wouldn’t get with another piece of medical equipment.

Better Results

Because ultrasound provides a quick, accurate result, you can start the treatment process as soon as possible. Ultrasounds are practical for diagnosing abdominal and gastrointestinal disturbances, two of the most common issues in dogs and other animals.

 This faster process can be the difference between successfully treating a disease or making the problem worse. With ultrasound equipment, you’ll be able to get a quick start on the treatment and recovery process. Getting ahead of the disease or illness gives you the best chance of defeating it.

Word of Mouth Referrals

When you begin using your ultrasound equipment, your customer satisfaction rates will increase. It gives you a chance to stand out from your competitors by delivering speedy results without having to send them to another facility. There are few things that clients appreciate more than efficiency and honesty. After experiencing the lightning-fast diagnosis an ultrasound provides them, they’ll be telling all their friends about your service.

 Your clinic can also become a viable place where customers take their pets for a second opinion. Typically, if a person’s pet requires surgery, they want to double-check with another clinic before moving forward with the operation. In this case, they’ll want to go to a vet that can quickly confirm the need for surgery.

Imaging Versatility

An ultrasound’s value lies in its versatility. You can take your portable ultrasound to different rooms of your clinic as well as on the road. This versatility opens you up to a new audience. You can now make in-home visits, which can improve your customer review scores.

 With modern ultrasound equipment, you can perform echocardiography, diagnostic screening, preventive testing, and much more. Purchasing ultrasound equipment is more affordable than ever and will change the way you do business.
