Ultrasound has an impeccable safety record, in large part due to a commitment by those who use it to do so appropriately.



Professional ultrasound scanners will use gel at time of scanning, the primary purpose of which is to allow the ultrasound waves to pass into the body without reflecting off intervening air.



Number counting is standard practice in the cattle and sheep scanning world, but less so for canine or feline work. Why is this?


The importance of training

Whether your pet is having pups for the first time, you’re an experienced dog or cat breeder, or you run a farm, finding a properly trained scanning professional is extremely important.

A high-quality scan will confirm pregnancy, allowing you to optimise your animal’s care and feeding.

  • Yesterday we had our cat moon shadow scanned to confirm her pregnancy and what an experience. absolutely lovely lady so kind and gentle with our cat even tho she was growling lol. Today I have been emailed a copy of the scan video and images and its a lovely thing to have. I would recommend brooks pet services to everyone what a fantastic and friendly service. They can give u peace of mind and now we know to prepare for at least three kittens in approximately two weeks. Thank you so much for everything x

  • I really don't like getting my bitches scanned, having only had them done by a vet in the past, Tania put my mind at rest and my goodness, what a different experience. Fleur didn't even know she was being scanned, so quiet and calm in our own house, Tania predicted 8 or 9 and she was right, we had 9 puppies born last Sunday. Thank you so much, I would use you now every time.

  • Lyndsey visited us in our own home today to scan our very shy timid poppy dog.
    Poppy was relaxed and comfortable in her bed and at no point throughout the scan did poppy show any signs of stress. She actually enjoyed having her Tummy rubbed by the scan probe.
    Lyndsey is great easy going friendly whilst very professional,and knowledgable.
    We didn't expect to,see any puppies due to poppy not showing any signs of pregnancy and we are experienced breeders of chocolate Labradors and were pleasantly surprised by the scan results. Thanks Lyndsey.. look forward to the post whelp scan.
