ULTRASOUND SCANS TO CONFIRM PREGNANCY FROM £20
SEE HERE FOR FULL PRICE LIST

Pregnancy can be confirmed from 28 days after the last mating, although optimum results are achieved from around day 32 - 35 of your bitch's pregnancy. I can scan earlier than 28 days if you have concerns over an unusual discharge from your bitch OR you had an accurate progesterone test and know the date of ovulation.

The ultrasound procedure is non-invasive and, in most cases, doesn’t require the animal to be shaved nor does it require sedation or an anaesthetic. A probe is covered with water based gel and placed on the animal’s abdomen, emitting an ultrasound wave in order to detect pregnancy.

Please note that any indication of numbers is an estimate as re absorption can occur and not all foetuses may be seen Calcification of foetal bones is around day 45, but can sometimes be seen earlier.

Using top of the range equipment only available to a handful of ultrasound scanners in the UK, I can scan your bitch
and confirm pregnancy from £20 (between 9am - 5pm) or £30 evenings and weekends.

I generally recommend a rescan if your bitch's first scan indicates a single puppy, the bitch has a discharge during pregnancy or she has had previous problems during pregnancy. Some breeders will always have a rescan at around 7 weeks to check all is ok. See a typical 7 week scan here.

I do not offer a progesterone testing service. Note - blood should only be taken from your bitch by a vet, or
veterinary nurse when there is a vet on the premises. A 'fertility clinic' is not a vet practice. I do have some progesterone test kits available which can be ordered free from Idexx. See more here
