#43: Chainsaw's Ultrasound

In this video you will see Chainsaw setting up nicely for our veterinary staff to take an ultrasound of her body. When she is on her back, or ventral up, we are looking at her liver. When she is sitting up we are looking at her kidney.

Setting up for an ultrasound is an example of a husbandry behavior that we train to make sure our animals are as healthy as possible.



  1. Wait... does this mean she's pregnant?

  2. Ultrasounds can be used for many diagnostic tests, not just for pregnancy. This particular procedure was done to look at Chainsaw's kidneys and liver, which you can see in a later post.
