Written specifically for dog breeders
When I first started teaching ultrasound to dog breeders, there were no ultrasound textbooks written for lay scanners. Eight years on, there still aren’t. Enthusiastic students of ultrasound are spending between £80 and £120 on veterinary textbooks, of which only a few pages may be relevant. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been asked to recommend a book by new and experienced scanners alike. So, with the help of Yvette Lovis and all of our students, I’ve finally written one.
Packed full of insider knowledge
Based on many years of writing and teaching ultrasound courses, talking to dog breeders and veterinarians, speaking to equipment manufacturers and being involved in the design and development process, this book is designed as a comprehensive learning and reference tool for the serious canine pregnancy scanning.
‘Ultrasound for Canine Pregnancy Scanning’ breaks down all of your ultrasound machine’s controls and demystifies the physics, giving you greater insight into how your equipment works and how to get the most out of it. It includes three guest chapters from Yvette Lovis, covering reproductive anatomy, measurement techniques and gestational age calculation, and recognising pyometra. The final chapters of this book look at advanced imaging techniques you can use, as well as to the future – of 3D/4D technology.
