About HKVUS

The veterinarians of Hong Kong, like their colleagues around the world, desire the ability to manage all of their patients care from admission to discharge. Likewise, the patient’s owners prefer to have their animals stay at one facility and to be cared for by a veterinarian or veterinarians that they know and trust.

Having spent a considerable amount of time working with the veterinarians of Hong Kong, we determined that a mobile ultrasound service would allow for seamless patient care with minimal to no patient transport, faster and less intrusive diagnostic testing and cost effective patient care for the pet owners.  We elected to offer not only abdominal, cardiac and small parts ultrasound but also cage side systemic blood pressure measurement and coagulation evaluation.  By doing so we are capable of scanning a patient, assessing the patent for post-aspirate or biopsy risk and then collecting any samples that might be required to accurately diagnose the underlying problem(s).

Being able to collect ultrasound guided aspirates and biopsies quickly and without excessive patient duress is critical. Equally important is the diagnostic skills of the pathologists examining the collected samples and interpreting any other co-existing laboratory findings. Our team led by Dr. Myriam Baranger-Ete is thrilled to also provide full range of veterinary laboratory tests including clinical pathology (blood, urine, cytology) and anatomical pathology consults (histopathology) with Asia Veterinary Diagnostics’ unique pathology team.
