Large Animal Ultrasound
Welcome to the Large Animal Ultrasound Service at the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. UC Davis’ Large Animal Clinic is one of few veterinary hospitals in the country with a service dedicated exclusively to large animal ultrasound and staffed by faculty specifically trained in its use. While the majority of our cases are horses, we also see livestock patients, both production animals and pets, such as goats, sheep and pot belly pigs. We are also called upon to help determine the cause of lameness in everything from an aged Holstein steer to a champion bucking bull. The wide and varied caseload at the VMTH provides our board-certified faculty veterinarians with vast experience and expertise in all areas of ultrasound. As a result, each ultrasound exam can be tailored to the individual needs of your horse to establish the most accurate diagnosis possible. Our state-of-the-art ultrasound machines have been carefully selected for their superior imaging abilities in equine patients. Our mission is to always provide you, your horse and your veterinarian with the highest quality imaging experience, while simultaneously providing an excellent learning opportunity for our students, the equine veterinarians of the future.
