It all depends on where you are, what you are ultra-sounding for, and what your vet wants to charge you for coming out to do an ultra-sound. If I remember correctly, it was at least $200, to get my mare's lower leg ultra-sounded, but she also needed the entire superficial flexor tendon to be done, because she tore it almost completely through, and we needed to know exactly where the tear was, and exactly how bad it was, and then we had to ultra-sound 2 more times as it healed. We also had to pay for sedation as well, so that she didn't move around as we were messing with her rather painful injury. It doesn't cost anything to call a vet, and have them give you an estimate of how much it would cost, so if you think its something that should be done, I'd call around, and get some prices from people in your area.
