Ultrasound Scanning is a non-invasive safe procedure, which can detect whether or not your bitch is pregnant. With our state of the art Digital Veterinary Portable Ultrasound Scanner Machine, we can scan your bitch between 28 -35 days after matings to find out whether or not she is pregnant.
The Scans can be performed either at our premises (Llanelli SA15 area), or if you wish to avoid unnecessary stressful journeys, we also offer a mobile scanning service where scans can be done in the comfort of your own home.
If your bitches scan is negative, you will be entitled to one FREE re-scan (at our premises) if taken between 7-10 days later to allow for any potential late conceptions
Your bitch can be scanned either standing up. A water based gel is used on the probe and abdomen area of the bitch to ensure good skin to probe contact which allows for a clearer picture on the screen. Usually there is no need to clip any hair from the abdomen however, occasionally if a breed is excessively hairy it may be necessary to clip a small area up the centre of the abdomen (with owners consent) to ensure a clear picture can be obtained.
We prefer appointments to be booked in advance,however if you require an appointment at short notice we will try to accommodate you.

PLEASE NOTE….The ultrasound scan service we offer is for the detection of pregnancy ONLY, we are not vets, neither do we purport to be, and our service is not to be used as a replacement or substitute for veterinary care. We may be able to give you a guestimate of the number of puppies seen on the day of the scan. However, puppies can be hidden under the rib cage out of view, and bitches can occasionally re-absorb foetuses between scan date, and whelping date. For this reason we do not give any guarantee of the exact number of pups that will be born.
