In "Asinerie du Bocage", we regularly give
echography to all mares we think they in gestation.
This has a two fold effect:
- - to be sure the mare is fertilized. If she is not the veterinary
surgeon will try to find the cause, and propose a treatment if it
- to control the twin pregnancy. Those are not recommended because
the foals can have problems, and it can use your mare prematurely.
Your veterinary surgeon will generally advise you to keep one embryo,
and will eliminate the second by pinching. This intervention has
to be done as soon as possible, and within three weeks.
It is thus advised to give an echography to the mare
15 days after the covering, i.e. after the end of heat.
To give echography with good conditions, we
installed a tubular corridor equipped with a shelf to put
the echography appliance...
Our veterinary surgeon printed echography photos between 14 days
to 3,5 months to allow us to discover the embryo's evolution:
