Heartbeat through stethoscope??
I recently rescued a pregnant mare and I am wondering if it is possible to hear the heartbeat with a stethoscope??
I never could when mine was pregnant, even days before she foaled. I asked my vet about it one day, he said he never could either, and very few can.
The baby's heartbeat I'm assuming? I have only been able to hear them through ultrasounds.
No. There is too much between the baby and the outside of the belly to hear a foal's heartbeat with a stethoscope.
Okay...thanks so much!!
