The Course

Start your journey in animal ultrasound...

Our Animal Ultrasound courses are designed for breeders who wish to scan animals competently rather than pay expensive prices at the Vets. Ultrasound scanning within the home environment is much less stressful on animals and saves the inconvenience of transporting potentially pregnant mothers to veterinary practices.


Ideal for those wanting to start a new ultrasound business or add an additional service to an existing business; i.e dog groomers, microchip implanters, fertility clinics.

This course is delivered using a step by step easy to understand no nonsense approach (NO technical jargon & NO difficult to understand veterinary language).

Once course is completed you will be added to our CPD advanced learning group completely free of charge for continued professional development.
