SonoVet is a mobile ultrasound consultation service serving veterinarians in San Antonio, Austin & I-35 Corridor of the Hill Country of Texas. SonoVet is independently owned and operated and founded in June 2008.  SonoVet, Inc. and is not affiliated with any ultrasound company or other entity.  SonoVet provides diagnostic services to local veterinarians in their practices and does not offer exams to the general public.

Advanced clinical ultrasound has become a standard of care in veterinary medicine and can non-invasively produce results unequaled by any other diagnostic medium.  The results are immediate and the information gleaned can greatly enhance the relationship between the general practitioner and client because of the good results the practitioner creates by enhancing diagnostic efficiency on a wide variety of cases.
