PUPPY ULTRASOUND SCANNING

At 6 – 8 weeks of age when the hip (or elbow) is predominately cartilage an image is acquired by Ultrasound, a non-invasive imaging technique that and does not require any hair removal.  The scan is performed in real time, there is no ionising radiation and therefore there is no risk to ovaries or testes. The breeder can see the images immediately.


Ultrasound imaging allows internal body structures to be seen by recording echoes or reflection of ultrasonic waves. No anaesthetic or sedation is needed. The image is taken while the puppy is in a natural load bearing position or cradled in the breeder’s or a team member’s arms. Both hips or elbows can be imaged in less than 15 minutes. 

The Ultrasound conductive water based gel is applied to the puppy’s coat and leaves no residue when wiped away. The gel is non-toxic so has no impact on the coat. 

Donations received from the ultrasound scanning will go towards funding the Pupscan Research Project.

If you would like your litter scanned please contact us as soon as the puppies are born:

PLEASE NOTE!
Once your litter is born and you have confirmed an appointment for scanning you will receive a form for completion.

IT IS VITAL FOR THE RESEARCH PROJECT THAT ALL PAPERWORK IS COMPLETED AND RETURNED PRIOR TO YOUR LITTER BEING SCANNED.

Once your litter has been scanned and the data collected, and only when all data has been signed off can a unique Pupscan ID number be assigned to each individual puppy.
This unique Pupscan ID number is designed to enable identification and verification that the puppy has been scanned.  It will not be possible to scientifically validate the scan findings without all other data that Pupscan request.

Without an ID number it will not be possible to support the claim that a puppy has been scanned as that puppy will not be recorded on the database.
A Certificate will be issued confirming the ID number.

It is important to recognise that failure to complete and return the forms will result in no ID Certificate being issued.
