I just read about an external ultrasound for checking to see if a mare is pregnant
http://animark.us/animal_pregnancy_detectors.html
And also something to check ovulation
http://animark.us/animal_ovulation_prediction.html
Has anyone had any success in using these and if so what do you have to say about them?

hi. we had a mare emergency a few weeks back and shipped to the university hospital. There they had an external u.s. machine. They used it to checkthe foal to see if it was distressed. It was truly remarkable...we saw it's heart, its ribs...everything. Mind you, this mare was 300 days along...but it was quite a sight. my on farm vet ( repro vet) doesn't have one....i don't know how useful they are in detecting pregnancy or at what stage they could pick it up.

We just had our two mares checked for ovulation with the machine and one mare will be checked on friday for pregancy. So far we have had good luck with it. The machines don't look quite like the ones on the link, but i am guessing they are the same thing.

There are very different forms of external ultrasound.

The unit that was seen at the vet. hospital and is used by veterinarians is, in all likelihood, similar to the standard "rectal" ultrasound but with a special probe (typically a lower frequency that gives better penetration). These units are pretty expensive.

The Animark-type products are considerably cheaper, not typically used by veterinarians or professionals in the field, and have mixed research results.

If you do a search of this board for "ovatec" or "ovascan" you will find past discussion on this topic.
