You may either submit a referral form directly via e-submission (below) or e-mail. For same day emergencies please contact our staff directly to discuss your case and our availability. Have the patient information and reason for the ultrasound ready before calling for availability.
Our regional schedule is available online but for specific days and times please contact our staff. Due to the unpredictable nature of mobile care, our arrival time and and scanning window is always our best estimate.
Please provide your client with ultrasound preparation instructions and ultrasound consent forms. They are available to download (below) and print or e-mail. We do ask that all pets be fasted for 12 hours unless medically contraindicated. Please see our recommeded pre-medications below.
On the day of the scan, all pets should be dropped off and checked in prior to the scanning window. We will call you when we are en route to your practice with a specific arrival time. If sedation will be needed, please have a plan ready before we arrive.
Our aim is to let you keep seeing patients. We arrive with all necessary equipment and a skilled assistant to restrain. Veterinary staff is always welcome to observe the ultrasound but there is no need for our presence to interrupt your day. Feel free to focus on your other patient's needs during our visit.
Sonographer findings are available
immediately. The final radiologist
report is typically sent within 24-48
hours, while emergency studies can be
returned in 1-2 hours. Our goal is to
assist you in the diagnostic process; we
provide quality imaging and expert
interpretation while keeping the patient care in your hands.
Consider transferring unstable ultrasound cases to a local ER. STAT ultrasound scans are available at PEC if deemed appropriate by the supervising PEC clinician. PEC DOES NOT ACCEPT REFERRALS FOR OUTPATIENT ULTRASOUNDS.
