Companion Animal Pregnancy Scanning
Journey from total beginner to complete confidence with using ultrasound to confirm and monitor pregnancy in dogs and cats.
Led by sonographer Catherine Stowell, you will learn all the tips, tricks, and pitfalls of canine and feline pregnancy scanning – and become confident with ultrasound in the process. Regardless of your level of experience or ultrasound machine, if you follow the steps in this programme, you will be able to offer a pregnancy scanning service within weeks.
This course comes with lifelong access, expert support and community membership.
Due to the fact that we often discuss and walk through cases from real patients in clinical practice, this course is strictly for veterinarians, vet nurses and vet techs only.

It allows you to rule in or out overt cardiac disease without referral to a cardiologist; to guide patient management (such as the staging of mitral valve disease in dogs, or treatment of feline patients with HCM); and to investigate murmurs found in pre-operative checks.
