Taking care of your farm animals can be a very fulfilling experience but when they become pregnant you will need to pay extra attention to them during this period because a lot of things could go wrong that could affect the life of the animal.
Here are 4 things you should not do when your animal is pregnant:-
The use of drugs should be avoided as much as possible particularly the use of antibiotics to avoid birth defects, an under +developed fetus or cause problems with the skeletal muscle of the animal. Drugs should only be given if the potential benefit justifies a potential risk to the animal.
