We travel to veterinary hospitals/clinics within a 90 minute travel time of Canon City, Colorado to perform ultrasound examinations on small animal patients. Ultrasound can improve diagnostic capability by providing non-invasive images of abdominal and thoracic organs. We bring state of the art ultrasound equipment to your practice and provide quality studies including Color and Spectral Doppler evaluation. Additional testing may also be recommended and performed. Appointments are scheduled through the primary care veterinarian office. Because the primary care veterinarian will continue to be the case manager, we are not able to accept requests for appointments directly from pet owners.
