With the advancement of science and technology, there has been a special pregnancy tester to detect whether an animal is pregnant: Veterinary B ultrasound.
Make breeding farms, dairy farms, pig farms and breeding centers improve breeding efficiency; increase litter production and milk production; reduce empty space and feed waste rate.

When probing, it is only necessary to apply the coupling agent to the probe, and then stick it on the lower abdominal wall. There is no damage and irritation during the exploration. It has the characteristics of short exploration time, no stress and high accuracy. The image is intuitive. When you see the dark area of the black gestational sac or the bone image of the fetus, you can confirm the positive of early pregnancy. Early pregnancy monitoring can be performed as early as 18 days after breeding, and the accuracy of pregnancy monitoring can reach 100% on 22 days.
Although the accuracy of veterinary ultrasound can reach 100%, but the cost of testing is too high, it is not the first choice for many small and medium-sized farms.
It is the correct product and tool you choose. It can detect porcine pregnancy hormones in pig urine. You only need to collect some urine in a paper cup, and then use the test strip to test.
