By using an AUA accredited scanner, you can be assured:
Quality of service – the worst feeling is to pay for a scan, and then realise once the scanner has walked out the door that you actually feel less sure about your animal than before they arrived! Yet, this is becoming an increasingly common occurrence as an increasing number of individuals find themselves out of their depth in front of paying clients.
Honesty of service – AUA scanners will never attempt to offer a diagnosis or replace a veterinary service in any way. Where there is any doubt whatsoever, an AUA scanner will refer you to your veterinarian.
Experience – in addition to scanning experience and training, AUA scanners are experts in their chosen fields. Many offer additional advice and services, such as a whelping service or microchipping.
Quality and safety of equipment – all of our scanners are trained in ultrasound safety, hygiene and infection control.
