My brilliant ultrasonographer friend Liz shared this interesting case. You can actually use ultrasound to diagnose clots in the limbs as a cause of lameness.

When hindlimb lameness isn't orthopedic....

This is a 15 year old female spayed dog with acute onset left hind leg lameness. Radiographs were 100% normal. Ultrasound revealed the problem causing her lameness, and treatment can now target the correct issue.

And now the rDVM has the unenviable job of finding the underlying issue that is making her hypercoagulable in the first place...

**update: the underlying cause is immune mediated hemolytic anemia, which is a known cause of hypercoagulability.**

Ok... I admit it I’m a complete sucker! I was called in by the wonderful organization Friends of Homeless Animals to do an echocardiogram on this total love bug named Doodle. He had a heart murmur.

Extruded Gall Bladder Mucocele

Did you know sometimes gall bladder mucoceles can rupture and the mucocele can migrate anywhere in the abdomen- even as far away as the urinary bladder? Here is an interesting case I had recently.

This was an unusual case. A 10 year old spayed female Cockapoo presented for inappetence, hiding, and panting for several days. She had been vomiting frequently for the previous 24 hours. On presentation, she was seve...

See the double lines (arrows) around the gall bladder wall? It’s gall bladder edema, also known as the halo sign. The rule outs for this include anaphylaxis, right sided heart failure, pericardial effusion, cholecystitis, pancreatitis, hypoalbuminemia, and IMHA.

Mellow that meow? Researchers say this special music can help nervous cats chillax at the vet’s office - The Boston Globe

I was happy to see this article. When I'm performing an ultrasound on cats I play the music they recommend in this article. Plus Feliway (a calming pheromone spray) and a dark room. Sedation if needed. I like to make it a calm, comfortable experience for the cat. Everyone including the cat is happier and I get MUCH better diagnostic information. Same for dogs. It's a win-win!

Researchers say music composed specifically for cats can help them chill out during a visit to the veterinarian.

Had a great time yesterday volunteering to do feline spays and neuters for the Loudoun Community Cat Coalition. Hadn't done surgery in awhile, so it was fun to get back into the surgery groove! It's an honor to help out so many kind volunteers working hard to help neighborhood cats 😊

Ultrasound image of intestinal lymphoma in a 7 year old Golden Retriever that presented for acute vomiting and fever. Hallmark of this disease is the loss of normal wall layering in the small intestine. Very enlarged and abnormal mesenteric lymph nodes seen in the bottom picture. Fine needle aspirate of the intestine confirmed high grade lymphoma.

This sounds like good news!

Why I Love Veterinary Ultrasound

I’ve been a small animal veterinarian in Virginia since 1997. During that time, I developed a passion for small animal ultrasound. As a general practitioner, I loved all the information I could derive from ultrasound; it’s an inexpensive, safe, and painless way to really get to the bottom of what was wrong with my patients. I took every ultrasound course I could get my hands on! I loved it so much that in 2018 I decided to start my own mobile ultrasound business so I could provide this service to more clinics in house. During this time, I have seen how pet owners loved having ultrasound done in their own veterinary clinics so they can maintain the bond they have with their regular vet. Plus the decreased expense and hassle of traveling to a specialty clinic makes it so much more accessible for them. Also, I get to give valuable information to my fellow veterinarians and enable them to work up cases more extensively. I love getting to know and work with my colleagues and work together as a team.

I am passionate about finding the answers to what is wrong with my patients. I love learning something new everyday and passing that knowledge on to those around me. I am grateful to be in this business and would be happy to bring this service to your veterinary clinic.
