Help For Next Year? JOS?

Sometimes the pregnancy doesn't go as expected and the foal is lost. Here you can share information and perhaps learn why it happened and/or how to prevent a reocurrence.

Well, knowing the vet with whom you're dealing (at least I think I know who it is!), I strongly suspect that what he says is right... and I have my doubts that he would miss a 34 day pregnancy - he's pretty good...! :(

Thanks Jos, You hit it on the head ;) I'll let RE know you said hello, hopefully because I think my silly mare tricked him for once in his life ;) haha... maybe... if not, next spring for sure... starting earlier and with a little extra attention! I'll tell him I have you on the case as well ;)

Well -- We are at day 58 and her WeeFoal 38 Test came back positive....

I guess I call back the vet - will he even be able to see on ultrasound at this time? I know there are some questions about timing and tipping over the pelvic rim?

Thanks !

Bear in mind that if the mare lost the pregnancy after the formation of the endometrial cups (which is around day 36) and therefore after the secretion of eCG has commenced (and these days are approximate, so there could a a variation of a couple of days either way), then she will still show "pregnant" with a WeeFoal test, as it's testing for the presence of eCG.

Hopefully he was wrong though and the test was right (which is far better than the other way around)... :)

As far as timing is concerned, you're still just within the time frame when the fetus should still be easily palpable. Shortly after this point, it may head over the pelvic brim, but actually you are in the time frame when fetal sexing can take place per ultrasound!

Ok, I have a call into the vet, we shall see!

I do realize and remember we discussed that she could show a false positive, so I'm not getting my hopes up too high - would rather have the definitive information than just wonder for 9 more months! :)

Ouch, but I have to add here...
Wee foal 38 is hardly perfected. I would rather see you use the wee foal 120.
I know MANY who have used the 38 and had incorrect results both ways.
I myself had difficulty with the test, and did a small study for wee foal . Using the same urine collection from a mare, I got 3 positives and 5 negatives. The mare was pregnant, confirmed by US. Test was used during the latter part of the test range for best results. Some samples of urine were diluted with distilled water, and it didnt make a difference.
I would have her re scanned, or wait till day 120 when you can use the wee foal 120 test. Also the wee foal 120 will not give a false positive if the mare has indeed lost the pregnancy. JMO :)
