Dog Breeder Training
Vet Image Solutions for the last 10 years have offered the gold standard for canine ultrasound scanning training in the UK, USA and Canada. We are the world leader for canine ultrasound training for non-veterenarians and we are proud to be the only company recognised by the Animal Ultrasound Association (AUA). We have trained some of the leading breeders across the world, and are the only company to offer on-going learning tools and support after training.
Our courses are taught by professional ultrasonographers, and will teach you to get the most out of your ultrasound scanner. We are the only company in the UK to offer a comprehensive training syllabus for dog breeders and other non-veterinarians looking to get into ultrasound scanning. After your one-day course, you will be able to:
- Confidently identify pregnancy and, more important, non-pregnancy
- Use your scanner to tell when a bitch is coming into or out of season
- Spot pyometra in its early stages, before it's too late (avoid spaying)
- Know what is normal and what is abnormal, and when to refer your client to a veterinarian
There will be a range of ultrasound scanners to try and you will receive a course booklet to take away, along with your VIS notepad and certificate of attendance. You will be taught how to operate an ultrasound scanner and transducer in order to perform a thorough abdominal examination on a bitch so that you can confidently identify pregnancy versus non-pregnancy.
With the exception of veterinary nurses, qualified obstetricians, or those otherwise professionally involved in veterinary care, all attendees of our level 2 course must have successfully completed our level 1 course (Introduction to Ultrasound). In order to get the most out of the day, it is also strongly recommended that you have at least 6 months' scanning experience between completing your level one and level two.
