Ultrasound is a valuable tool in many equine veterinary specialties. Practitioners use it to diagnose soft tissue injuries, respiratory issues, and colic causes. Reproduction specialists use ultrasound to monitor pregnancies, determine gender during gestation, and catch potential complications early. To help horse owners better understand how veterinarians use ultrasound in practice, Butterfly Network has partnered with TheHorse.com for Ultrasound Awareness Week, starting on Oct. 2, 2022.
