Rough cost of ultrasound and x ray?

I have a 19month old EBT Bitch, we bred her on her second season on the 27th and 29th of December. She is now 23days past mating and will be 28days/4weeks on the 26th.

After telling the vet we had mated her and the dates etc he said to bring her in the first week of Feb and he'll do an ultrasound to confirm if she's pregnant or not.

My partner is working late on tuesday the 2nd and off Thursday the 4th Feb so am unsure what day to take her in but it will be on one of those days. If we take her on the tuesday she'll be 35days and on Thursday she'll be 37days.

How much roughly does an ultrasound cost-we live in Gorseinon in South Wales and are going to gower veterinary surgery which is in upper killay-we take all of our dogs there for /check ups/treatment/vaccinations etc so I wasvery happy to hear they had ultrasound and x ray equipment there.

If she is pregnant I plan on getting an x ray done after 47days to try and estimate the number of pups there are. The sire usually has big litters, last 3 being 8,11,11 live pups all were first timers

Roughly how much does an x ray cost.

Thanks in Advance,
Sarah

Will your vet not give you a quote on request?

Re: Rough cost of ultrasound and x ray?

I am in the same situation (well maybe as my bitch has a slip mating on the 31st December.

Books vary on dates which are anything from 21 days and vets prefer it to be later approx 30 - 35 days (well mine does). Ellie has some odd signs but I am unsure she is pregnant ! My vet quoted for a scan £55 pounds, unsure on xray.

What signs of pregnancy has your bitch shown?

Good luck you are due when Ellie will be ! Hope it all goes well.

Re: Rough cost of ultrasound and x ray?

Hi Lin thanks for your reply,

I feel quite sure that she's pregnant, she seems to have changed quite alot.

She's scoffing her food, drinking ALOT of water, her teats are starting to look more prominent and are quite pink, plus she was sick yesterday afternoon (was worried about that but did read at around 3 weeks bitch can have 'morning sickness'

Its a case of waiting now until she has her ultrasound done, Im very excited and nervous at the prospect of her actually having pups in the meantime.

Re: Rough cost of ultrasound and x ray?

Hi Sarah

U see I convinced myself Ellie was not pregnant and on day 7 she started licking herself, day 14 - 19 a clear discharge, he nipples I think are more prominent and her inverted nipple seems raised. I am sure I am paranoid and am watching for any sign possible to just give me a positive or negative answer!
I am sure my stress levels are exceeding limits ! I would not be disappointed if she wasn't! It would be lovely. Have had no sickness, she is more fussy but hey that could be because she is caging for food

Do any of the above sound familiar ???

I love English Bull Terriors, a little bit of a match for a Cavalier King Charles !

Well you will have to let me know what is happening ! Good luck, sounds as if she is showing prominent signs than mine, your in for a very exciting time !

Re: Rough cost of ultrasound and x ray?

Ive been trying not to think about it to be honest, dont want to get our hopes up and 100% think she's pregnant only for her to have an ultrasound done showing she isnt.

It does look promising though so fingers crossed.

When is you CKC going for her ultrasound?

Re: Rough cost of ultrasound and x ray?

I will book her in for next Friday (it will be on day 30), Maybe he can tell yes or no without it ! I think I have looked at her nipples for the last two weeks who knows whether they are bigger or not !!

The size of the litter is nothing to do with the sire, but dependant on the dam - the number of eggs released, how many she can accomodate (those that she can't will be reabsorbed) and also the timing of the mating plays a part. Sorry, but it's a pet hate of mine LOL - seeing stud owners claims that their dogs sire large litters... it smacks of byb as they're showing their lack of knowledge.

Good luck with the litter.

Re: Rough cost of ultrasound and x ray?

Im not sure about that to be honest, he was not bragging at all I asked how many litters and how many pups the dog had sired and he told me, but I know what you mean about some breeders bragging about the numbers of pups his dog sires.

He said that one guy paid to use the same stud over and over with different 'unrelated' bitchs and he always had 3-5max when he went with our sire he had 8 and has used this dog since, always having no less than 6.
