A veterinary pregnancy ultrasound is a widespread veterinary examination method, which has the following advantages:
High safety: Compared with other inspection methods, veterinary ultrasound does not require the use of harmful substances such as radiation, so it has no side effects on the health and safety of animals.
Non-invasive: Ultrasound for animal pregnancies performs non-invasive inspections on animals through ultrasonic waves, which will not cause pain and discomfort to the animal’s body, so anesthesia is not required.
High accuracy: Veterinary ultrasound can accurately detect the number, size, position, placental status, and other information of the fetus in the uterus of the animal, so as to judge the animal’s pregnancy more accurately.
Strong real-time performance: Veterinary pregnancy ultrasound can display images in animals in real-time so that veterinarians can detect any abnormalities in time and carry out the necessary treatment.
Easy to operate: The operation of veterinary ultrasound is relatively simple. You only need to scan the abdomen of the animal to get a clear ultrasound image, so it is very suitable for on-site inspection.
Besides, having your own ultrasound scanner could help to reduce the risk of infecting your flock with diseases from another farm. Parvovirus, flu, salmonellosis, chlamydiosis, brucellosis, FMD, rotaviruses, and circoviruses are just a few examples of infections and pathogens you can protect your livestock from if you guarantee a high level of physical security. The same equipment used by different farmers is one of the most common disease transmission methods.
Also, using ultrasound equipment to monitor animal pregnancy can help farmers increase their income for the following reasons:
More accurate prediction of delivery time: The use of ultrasound equipment can accurately measure the pregnancy period of animals after conception, so as to better predict the delivery time. This enables farmers to better plan production and avoids shortages of adequate labor and equipment at critical moments.
Better disease prevention: Monitoring animal pregnancy can also help farmers prevent certain diseases. For example, if an animal fails to conceive, farmers can detect and diagnose the problem early, leading to better treatment and prevention.
Optimizing breeding: Ultrasound equipment can also help farmers determine the best time to breed animals to maximize breeding success and thus improve profitability.
Reduce costs: The use of ultrasound equipment can reduce unnecessary investment costs, such as reducing unnecessary supplementary nutrition for animals, reducing unnecessary treatment costs, etc.
Your profit highly depends on how fast you are able to detect pregnancy. Thanks to the quick detection of your animals’ condition you will be able to manage the process of procreation more efficiently, you will be able to monitor the pregnancy, and first of all, detect non-pregnant females. All these will help you to increase the economic indicator of your farm.
3 Things You Should Not Do When Your Farm Animal is Pregnant
Taking care of your farm animals can be a very fulfilling experience but when they become pregnant you will need to pay extra attention to them during this period because a lot of things could go wrong that could affect the life of the animal.
- The use of drugs should be avoided as much as possible, particularly the use of antibiotics to avoid birth defects, an +developed fetus, or cause problems with the skeletal muscle of the animal. Drugs should only be given if the potential benefit justifies a potential risk to the animal.
- Avoid the use of chemicals on the skin to avoid external parasites.
- Reduce any form of stress whatsoever. Limit movement and visitors to the animal pens and to the farm, and also reduce the activity of the animal as much as you can.
