GoFundMe Campaign – Ultrasound

Why we need to “see inside”

California sea lions admitted to Marine Mammal Care Center Los Angeles frequently have injuries to the back of the throat, the esophagus, and the stomach when they become entangled in line or from eating things they should not eat.

Ultrasonography is an essential diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine that helps the veterinarian visualize soft tissue structures making pregnancy, soft tissue masses, abdominal fluid, foreign bodies, or enlarged organs easier to detect. It can also be used to assist in identifying the proper location for biopsies and for intravenous catheter placement. Currently we often just have to wait and see how the animal does because we have not had necessary diagnostic tools to make informed health care decisions, but that can change.

The SonoSite Edge II ultrasound machine is battery operated and designed to be portable, so it can go to where the animal is. It is also water resistant, an essential feature for our patients in a wet environment. Please help the Marine Mammal Care Center Los Angeles provide state of the art care with state of the art diagnostic equipment. Our patients deserve the best we can give them.
