Scanning - what it does

Using ultrasound, scanning can indicate the litter size, and can offer a guide to whelping date, which will then allow owners to manage the health regime for their dog and alert a vet to any potential problems during gestation or birth. For accuracy on litter size, the optimum time for scanning is 4 to 6.5 weeks.  

The Consultation - what happens

Scanning is carried out in my home from 28 days after mating up to just prior to whelping. The bitch stands, she is relaxed and made comfortable first before non-invasive scanning is carried out.

This is the same machine and procedure that is used for humans so it is safe and no clipping is required.
