Pregnancy Ultrasound

ultrasound 2

The best time to complete an ultrasound scan to determine pregnancy is between the 5th and 6th weeks of gestation, however, it is sometimes possible to confirm pregnancy as early as 3 to 4 weeks although I wouldn’t recommend doing one this early. Scanning can also be used at the point of delivery if you are unsure whether all the puppies have been delivered.
It is not our practice to confirm the number of puppies expected as it is never possible to be sure of the exact number and a bitch may reabsorb one or more puppies between the time of the scan and the delivery.

I completed my Level One training with Vet Image Solutions which qualifies me to confirm pregnancy. There is a Level Two course that I intend to undertake in the future which will further my diagnostic skills so I will be able to look for other conditions. I’ll update the info here once I have completed this training to say what else I can diagnose.
