Ultrasound for Dogs

PORTABLE ULTRASOUND SCANNERS FOR DOG BREEDERS AND VETS

Ultrasound is a valuable tool for determining pregnancy, assessing fetal viability and correct formation, assessing number of fetuses, ensuring delivery of all puppies during whelping and much more.

GAIN CONFIDENCE

Mitigate the travel, stress, expense and radiation exposure that routine prenatal x-rays demand. Ultrasound offers a safe, convenient option allowing breeders to go into whelping with more confidence. Breeders can use ultrasound to confirm pregnancy, get an idea of how many puppies to anticipate, know when a bitch has whelped her last puppy and confirm and manage single puppy syndrome appropriately.

Ultrasound is an excellent tool for dog breeders and veterinarians to confirm pregnancy. Ultrasound scanners can be used successfully around 28 days’ post ovulation, though more challenging depending on skill level at giving highly accurate puppy counts compared to x-rays, it offers a safe, comfortable and convenient alternative to confirm pregnancy, fetal viability and fetal growth without radiation exposure to mother and puppies.

KEY CONSIDERATIONS:

Portable ultrasound designed for breeders. Yes, you can!

Canine ultrasound scanners come in all shapes and sizes, and it can be difficult to know where to start. As a breeder, owning your own ultrasound machine can quickly pay for itself and become an invaluable part of your breeding program, but choosing the right machine and supplier is essential.

The internet is full of ‘amazing’ deals, but there are 4 key things to be aware of when choosing an ultrasound machine for dog pregnancy work:

Image quality: A poor quality scanner offers low image resolution resulting in grainy images, which makes interpreting them accurately difficult.

Probe type: A lot of scanners said to be for veterinary use are in fact relabeled low-end human scanners and will not offer the correct probe size or frequency for abdominal scanning of canines.

Warranty: Ensure a warranty of at least 12 months from a company you can go back to easily.
