An Ultrasound scan is an imaging test that uses sound waves to create the picture that you see on-screen.  

Because ultrasound waves don’t travel very well through air, a conductive gel is used to enable a tight bond between your dogs skin and the handheld probe. This allows the sound waves to transmit directly to the puppies (hopefully) beneath.




 Their pregnancy ultrasound service can be used to confirm pregnancy from as early as 28 days, although it is recommended that you wait until the optimium time - which is 35 days from mating. 

At the scan you will be given a ‘guestimate’ of the number of pups (or kittens) present, however as pregnancy advances this becomes more difficult.  You will be provided with a guide to the number of puppies seen during the scan.

You will also receive a keepsake video of the ultrasound free of charge!
