Pregnant mare with Edema! Jos Help please

Postby marksrn98 » Sat Feb 16, 2013 6:26 pm

My soon to be 17 year old pregnant mare now has lots of edema on either side of her belly kinda underneath..it is pitting and has been there for two days, she is 251 days in foal/8 1/2 months. Her udder is fine with no changes, but I am really worried and she is a little stiff in the back legs. Talked to the vet on the phone and he said it should resolve but if it didnt we could put her on anti-inflammatories. Should I be worried about this? This has not been an easy pregnancy with 2 bad reactions to her rhino vaccines which we are no longer giving per vets recommendation. I gave her 1/2 dose of banamine yesterday and today and we are hand walking her...I can still feel the baby kicking and moving but not as much as before it seems..any advice Jos?

The edema doesn't look to be that severe, but obviously I can't really give a good opinion just looking at a photograph...

Edema is not uncommon in older mares, who often tend to have poorer circulation. The obvious thing to say though - and it is my advice to you - is that if you have concerns, have your veterinarian look at her. There are some other conditions that can manifest initially as edema (or look like it) which are more serious, so better to play safe...!!

Good luck!!

What other conditions could cause pitting edema starting like this Jos? What should I watch for?
