can an ultrasound be wrong??

Once the mare is in foal the question period should be over, right? Wrong! It's only just beginning! Discuss ideas and tips here for management techniques for the pregnant mare, and the new born foal and it's mother.

can an ultrasound be wrong??

Postby Junodoll » Wed Aug 21, 2013 9:38 am

Hi
so i have a standerdbred mare i have never put her with a stallion she is 4 years old have had her since she was a yearling however the first farm i had her at did not have proper containment of the stallion and i found out he got out in november i moved my mare in may due to the fact she was not being properly taken care of and was not being fed well she was in a paddock with 6 other horses and all they were getting was 3 square bails of hay between all of them a day during the winter months as well as spring.anyways i moved her she was covered in lice and skinny she has since gotten over her lice and is very fat this is where we are wondering whats up the farm she is at now has bred mares and swore that my mare Bella was pregnant she is all out the sides of her belly many people who have seen her swear shes pregnant and many have sworn they seen foal movement however if the stallion bred her when he got out in november she would be due in october theoretically.so we had the vet out yesterday a young guy never used him before only been a horse vet for 2 years nice guy he was out to test three other mares who were bred of the 3 he found one pregnancy but he looked at my horse Bella and almost didn't want to U/S her cause he was certain just by looking at her she was pregnant but we insisted and he U/S'd Bella and did not find a baby!!!! could the U/S be wrong??

In later pregnancy, the fetus may be over the pelvic brim and out of reach of the palpator, although by 9 months it will usually be back within reach (but may just be out of reach temporarily). Even when it is out of reach, the amniotic/allantoic fluid is visible on the ultrasound image, so there shouldn't be any error at this stage. It's always up to the ability of the person using the ultrasound though!!
We're always happy to try and help, but don't forget to check the articles section
of the website too, which has a search engine to help you look for answers!
