Get to Know the Advantages

There are various key advantages associated with dog pregnancy scanning; the major ones include the following;


Pregnancy scanning is a non-invasive procedure that does not require sedation or anaesthesia for the mother, making it a safer and less stressful and painful option compared to other methods of pregnancy detection, like abdominal palpation.

Early Detection

Ultrasound scanning can detect pregnancy as early as 28 days after breeding, allowing for early preparation and care for the mother and the developing fetuses. Thus, it’s a convenient option for breeders to move on accordingly.

Accurate Estimation of Litter Size

At an early stage, it’s highly curious to know how many pups are in the pipeline. This scanning procedure can accurately estimate the number of fetuses present in the uterus, allowing for appropriate preparation for whelping and care of newborn puppies.

Identification of Potential Complications

Pregnancy scanning can identify potential complications such as fetal death, fetal malposition, or uterine infection, allowing for prompt intervention and appropriate management. This is essential to avoid any further risks in the future.

The Right Time for Pregnancy Scanning

Usually, dog pregnancy scanning is possible as early as the 20th to 22nd day after breeding. But it’s okay if you missed it earlier. But at day 30 post-breeding, it’s a viable diagnostic tool that confirms whether your bitch is pregnant or not. Moreover, at approx day 40, bone ossification can be clearly detected.
