  • How do I prepare for my initial consultation?
    Please complete the patient questionnaire that can be found in the for pets section of this website.
  • Does my pet need to be sedated?
    The majority of abdominal ultrasound and fine needle aspirates can be performed without sedation. If your pet is generally anxious an oral sedative can be given the night before or morning of the appointment (e.g. gabapentin).
  • Do I work with directly with you or my primary care veterinarian?
    The flexibility of mobile specialty practice enables me to work both with you and your primary care veterinarian. I will contact you after a diagnostic plan has been made and a procedure is scheduled. I am happy to discuss any questions you may have regarding your pets status, the procedure, and post-procedural care and expectations. Following the procedure, I will call you again to let you know the histopathology or cytological findings once reported and to review the treatment plan or diagnostic plan if indicated. I provide a clinical report for your veterinary records and discharge instructions and you are welcome to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

    For most cases a 12-hour period of fasting (no food, water always acceptable) is best for the a good study, however, in specific cases with certain contains e.g diabetes mellitus please ask your primary care veterinarian.
