Pneumobort Reaction???

Once the mare is in foal the question period should be over, right? Wrong! It's only just beginning! Discuss ideas and tips here for management techniques for the pregnant mare, and the new born foal and it's mother.

Pneumobort Reaction???

Postby marksrn98 » Thu Nov 08, 2012 11:00 am

My mare is 5 months in foal as of yesterday..she got her 3 month pneumobort shot at 3 months and has had these shots with all of her 5 pregnancies before this one with her previous owners. An hour after her injection she had a severe reaction with heavy breathing, stiffness, excessive stool and watery, muscles quivering and contantly trying to lay down, her back legs were swollen a little at the fetlocks. Vet came out and gave her Banamine after 3 hrs onset and she showed improvement within 15 min or so..she started eating and drinking again and passing stool. We are on our third day this morning and she is still a little stiff/sore in the back legs, fetlocks and a little higher are still stocked up a bit, but she is eating, drinking, peeing and pooping. Vet says it may take a few days for her to completely recover but thinks she is on the mend. I have given her 1/2 doses of Banamine paste yesterday morning and this morning, but was told no more after that because of the baby. My questions are, will she come through this or can she have other complications like founder that I should be watching for, and how long will it be before I know the baby will survive this? She had a minor colicky type of event about 17 days before this incident but came through without medical intervention-she had been out on grass for longer than usual-we board her and they had put her out so I though that was the culprit. She has never colicked before in her life and she is 16. Any answers to put my mind at ease?

Not really any answers to your questions - reactions can occur to any injection, and it just looks as though you have been unfortunate.

The use of Banamine is actually warranted at this point and as it is a prostaglandin-release inhibitor, I personally do not see a reason to discontinue use. It is in fact used on a daily basis later in pregnancy when dealing with placentitis cases. You might want to have your vet (or you) consult with a reproductive specialist (such as at your local Veterinary University) on the subject.

Another drug that might be considered of benefit at this stage would be a progestin such as Regumate or injectable altrenogest (from BET Pharm). Again, if your vet is not comfortable or familiar with the use in this situation, perhaps get a second consult.

Good luck!

I do not want to give her the final two rhino shots for 7 and 9 months if she is able to continue with the pregnancy...I am afraid she will not survive another..is there much hope that the foal will survive if I don't give them? Also if a mare is a carrier, does she have to be showing symptoms to abort the foal or pass on the infection?

Talk to your vet about using a different brand. I had a mare have a reaction to the Fort Dodge vaccine at 3 months, and vaccinated at 5 months with the Prodigy vaccine, she was fine. Ask your repro vet :)

Can you get me more information on what had ended up happening with your mare? This just happened to my mare about an hour post breeding. I've been looking for a few answers on why it happened and how I can prevent it from happening again. Any and all information you think might be useful I would greatly appreciate!!

Post-breeding is a very different matter from post-vaccination. If the mare has not improved by now ( about 6 hours after your post) you should get in contact with your veterinarian, as a tear of some sort may be indicated.

I didn't see this earlier, or I would have said the same thing then too... :(

Let us know how you make out..
