Ultrasound Scanning

If you recently had your dog breed, you can confirm the pregnancy of your bitch through ultrasound scanning from 21 days onwards after the last mating. A dog ultrasound scan is a non-invasive imaging procedure performed by professionals to see your pet’s internal body parts.

Is this service for pregnant bitch only? The answer is no. The ultrasound and scanning procedure is also performed for pets suspected of having tumors, internal body problems, and other health problems that ultrasound scanning can detect.

If you are a dog breeder who wants to confirm pregnancy, ultrasound scanning is your best option. At K9 Fertility Clinic, we offer ultrasound scanning for pregnancy confirmation, care, and quick diagnosis of internal health issues in dogs.

When to have an Ultrasound Scan for my Dog

Suppose you want to confirm pregnancy for your bitch, be updated on the pregnancy, see how puppies are growing, litter progress, litter size, check if there are possible problems, or if you want a second opinion. In that case, ultrasound scanning is always a great option.

Is your bitch pregnant? Ultrasounds are one of the best ways to identify the whelping date of your dog. In addition, this procedure helps dog breeders prepare before their bitch gives birth.

Ultrasound scans are also one of the best methods to see any health problems in your dogs which commonly includes: heart conditions, abnormalities in urine and blood test, ultrasound-assisted tissue collection, and soft-tissues examination. These underlying health problems can be confirmed and diagnosed by ultrasound.

Is Ultrasound Scanning Safe?

A scanning service is a non-invasive scan procedure that uses sound waves that are 100% safe for your pet. This method is carried out through modern equipment and technology that allows experts to check your pet’s internal body.

However, for abdominal ultrasounds, dog owners might have to avoid giving their pet water and food for a more accurate image of the procedure. Most pets that undergo animal ultrasound are well-behaved, but in some cases where pets become agitated, they will be sedated for the procedure.

How is it done?


Ultrasound services are performed by shaving the fur first on the area before proceeding with the procedure. Our veterinary sonographer will then use a gel to smoothly navigate the area after shaving the fur to prevent air space. Using a hospital grade also allows sonographers to see more precise images. A handheld probe will be used to scan the site.

Official results often vary depending on the number of customers the clinic has. Usually, dog owners and breeders must wait a few days for the result and accurate diagnosis.
