The science bit
The probe (scanner) projects invisible sound waves at the body of the tissue which measures the speed and direction at which sound waves are interpreted by the machine uses therefore displaying imaging on the screen. There are ceramic crystals within the probe that vibrate causing a pressure of waves for the desired frequency thus transmits through the skin surface using the acoustic couplant the sound waves are then continued through the surrounding tissue until it hits a boundary with another tissue. At the boundary a number of interactions occur the ultra-sound is then reflected back to the probe and demonstrated on the screen showing the tissue of the body.
This does not harm or hurt your pet in anyway. And is totally painless.
