Ultrasound & Radiography Now Available for Sheep, Goats and Cattle Pregnancy Diagnosis

Dr. Johnson is now able to offer small ruminant ( sheep, goats) and cattle pregnancy diagnosis by ultrasound. Other ultrasound capabilities will soon follow with additional training.

Today, she used the equipment for the first time with sheep, diagnosing pregnancy (or lack there of) in as many as 18 ewes per hour. There is a per head equipment fee in addition to the regular hourly rate. Call for more information and to schedule an appointment.

Also, CALVS has radiograph (xray) equipment now, allowing more specific diagnostic information for injured animals.

Both systems are top-of-the-line, providing substantial ruggedness for the farm environment and able to run entirely off of batteries for at least 2 hours each. This advanced equipment will help farmers make difficult decisions in the field by providing more complete diagnostic information. Dr. Johnson will be able to send digital images to radiograph veterinary specialists when needed for expert interpretation.
