For companion animal examinations, the 6.5 MHz C20 micro convex is the most commonly used probe. Routine examination of the bladder, uterus, abdomen for fluid, thorax for fluid, can be done with the Flexx with this 6.5 MHz probe. The 3.5 MHz C60 T handle probe may be used for large dogs and the 7.5 MHz L40 T handle probe is recommended for very small dogs, tendons and cats.
Having the right ultrasound equipment for mixed animal practice is a challenge. Providing bovine, equine, small ruminant and companion animal ultrasound examinations for your clients is a challenge. Multiple probes are involved as the organs and body systems examined are all very different in shape and size between species. A mixed animal practitioner may be called upon to exam equine tendons, pregnancy test goats, exam a dog for ascites and pregnancy test cows all in the same day! Having a multi-probe ultrasound unit in each mobile veterinary unit helps make the challenging days for a rural mixed animal practitioner much easier.
The ReproScan Flexx allows your mixed practice to have a portable ultrasound unit with up to 5 probes to choose from at a very affordable price. There are 3 viewing options that allow the veterinarian to use the Flexx in challenging outdoor environments and still look very professional back at the clinic.
