Ultrasound is a skill that is not taught in veterinary college. Learning to do a complete and thorough diagnostic ultrasound requires a large amount of training, studying and practice.

Since 2002, I have received over 200 hours of hands-on ultrasound training with board-certified radiologists and cardiologists. As in most aspects of veterinary medicine, the learning never stops. 

Since 2008 I have taught over 150 hours of in-clinic ultrasound courses to small groups of veterinarians, as well as one-on-one instruction for veterinarians who have purchased an ultrasound machine for their veterinary hospital. I have taught veterinarians from British Columbia to the Maritimes. 

In June 2010, I joined a group of 4 ultrasonographers in Hong Kong. We were invited over by the Hong Kong Veterinary Association to conduct a 4 day lecture/wet-lab seminar on abdominal and cardiac ultrasound. This was an amazing experience.
