I will try my best to give an accurate count of puppies/kittens/babies when carrying out a scan but will not be held responsible if the figure given is not exactly correct at the time of birth. Lower numbers can be due to absorbtion and higher numbers can be due to babies being held very high in the ribcage. This can also be the cause of a negative scan when there is in fact a single baby lodged high in the ribcage where the scanner cannot reach. Again, i will not be held responsible for this event.
NB/ A negative 1st scan can be caused by late conception so a second scan is always advised to ensure the correct outcome.
