Ultrasonography

The advanced diagnostic technique of ultrasound has become a standard of care in veterinary medicine allowing the veterinarian the opportunity to see images of the internal organs and structures giving information about the patient quickly, safely and without the need for surgery. 

 We offer general ultrasound services:

  • pregnancy diagnosis
  • Ultrasound pregnancy confirmation is possible as early as day 20-22 after breeding but can be missed this early.  Ultrasound at day 30 post-breeding is the optimum time to confirm pregnancy. Ultrasound has the drawback of not being 100 % accurate to count puppies,  but it can determine heartbeats in the puppies.
  • as a diagnostic aid

More complex and advanced ultrasound cases will be referred to the most appropriate Referral services.
