mare urinating all the time

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.

mare urinating all the time

Postby mtntopmorgans » Thu Feb 06, 2014 12:04 pm

HI gang I am new to this group (thank you to my dear friend that recommended this group). Here is what I have going on.
My Morgan mare is due to foal February 20th. Though I know it seems early that will be her foal at 318 days. THIS mare always foals at 318 days (she has had 6 foals for me all ready) and her foals are fully cooked, actually they look like a month old foal when born. So her going at 318 days isn't a concern for me. This is her 9th foal.

What seems to be worrisome is that in mid December (about 8 weeks before due date) She was really peeing all the time, sometimes a little sometimes a normal amount. Tail really raised almost like she was in a super HARD heat! This last for a few days. I took in urine sample and it all came back normal. We figured it was the foal repositioning and just irritating her bladder

After a few days it basically stop with all the peeing and straining hard heat type of thing. But I think she dribbles a bit still as you can see a bit of a "trail" of wet down her leg.

WELL yesterday she was REALLY doing this and it was constant just like the time in December. For about 4 hours she would every few minutes squat and pee either a little of normal amounts depending. LOTS of winking winking like a hard heat. Last night she was back to normal.

This morning when she went out she peed normal amount but VERY dark. And I found weird wet spots in the stall where there is no shavings. Seemed to have a film over it. :(

I check her twice a day and her bag is filling as it should to foal in 2 weeks. She does not have a discharge from her vulva though I can wipe pee from it. The insides of her vagina look healthy as well. All is tight there.

So should I be concerned? The vet doesn't seem to think so (I do over worry, one of my faults I guess). The vet seems to think that this might just be the new normal for her. She is older had lots of foals (she is in FANATIC shape one would not know she has had that many foals).

Hopefully someone can ease my mind a bit. (BTW I am going to try and get a urine sample again today but that doesn't tell me anything about how the baby is doing :( ) I hope this was the correct Topic to put this under. I wasn't sure she hasn't lost her foal I am just worried she might.

The chances are fair that it is merely the foal putting pressure on the bladder in an awkward manner. If you have concerns and are not comfortable with your veterinarian's opinion though, seek a second opinion with another vet! :)
We're always happy to try and help, but don't forget to check the articles section
of the website too, which has a search engine to help you look for answers!
