both abdominal ultrasound and echocardiograms can be performed on most exotic animals for a large array of reasons. Paw Prints does not discriminate, nor do we back down from a challenge: We see all different types of exotic patients. Some examples are snakes, lizards, rodents, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, birds, hedgehogs and even a polar bear.
Normally performed around day 30 for dogs and day 25 for cats post breeding to confirm pregnancy and evaluate for viability. Not the gold standard for counting puppies or kittens.
