    I paid $70.00 for the ultra sound of my girls litter. I was concerned that she might have a small litter and the pups might be too large I was relieved when the ultra sound showed 7 + pups.

    $42. It's the only service at my regular vet with reasonable price tag. Unfortunately, they aren't very good at reading them. $125 at the repro specialist who not only gives a pretty decent low end count, but some indication of sexes.

    You've got to be kidding...are you doing them right before birth?

    stopped doing them, we do an x-ray before and after the whelping.
    Discipline is no excuse for a lack of enthusiasm !!

    Same here, John, only one of the local vets has an ultrasound, and 5 of the 6 vets there don't know how to use it. The sixth one did one for me once to check a pregnancy but refused to do it after that as she was not "comfortable" reading it. Go to the vet who can do them (an hour away) and it's $200.

    They seriously can't tell gender from an ultrasound, can they? I had several done with a repro specialist in MI and we had a hard time even seeing the blips that were pups, let alone that kind of definition.
