Low battery indication. -Specially chosen by Renco Corporation to assure long life, the battery pack will last for years, and give many hours of testing on one charge. -Rugged all-metal construction. Small enough to slip in your pocket.

How does PREG-TONE work?

The patented PREG-TONE uses high frequency sound waves called ultrasound to detect amniotic fluid present during pregnancy. When this fluid is detected, the instrument produces a loud continuous tone. When used on an animal which is not pregnant, the instrument produces an intermittent recurring tone. The intermittent tone also indicates that good skin contact is being made.

Swine: Testing may begin as early as 18 days (large litters, 11-12 piglets, will show positive at this stage), and open sows can be diagnosed as early as 30 days. Normal testing time in sows and gilts is 30-73 days. 

Sheep: Using the position shown above, pregnancy testing in ewes can begin at 35 days with most diagnoses made by 45 days. Testing can also be done in the normal standing position, providing diagnosis at 60-65 days. 

Goats: Testing may begin at 30-40 days on the right side. Put oil on test site. Probe is placed 2 in. (5cm) in front of the rear leg and 1-in (2.5cm) above the teat. When probe is in good contact, the intermittent tone will be heard. Aim probe 45° upwards and forwards i.e. towards the last rib. Scan across the uterus. If pregnant, the tone will turn into a continuous tone. Dairy goats such as the Oberhasli can be tested as early at 20 days.

Alpacas: Testing can begin at 30-40 days. Alpacas and llamas are tested on the left side. If unsuccessful, try the procedure on the right side. Place probe 6-8-in (15-20cm) down from the udder. (On maidens about 5-in (12cm)). Point probe straight into the abdomen at an angle defined by the shape of the abdomen.
