Sedaing a Pregnant Mare

Postby TTarby11 » Fri May 02, 2014 9:41 am

Hello,
I am not sure if I am putting this on the right forum. But this is my first time breeding my mare. She has had one filly before I owned her. I am getting her ultrasounded in about a week in a half to check to make sure she is pregnant. My vet wants to sedate her to ultrasound her. I was wondering if that is a safe thing to do? or if it will hurt the baby if she is pregnant? Any comments suggestions? Just looking for a little help! Thank you!

There are inherent risks associated with evaluation of horses per rectum, and without a set of stocks or a way to immobilise the mare, those risks are increased. Obviously as well, there are risks to to the person performing the examination without the availability of stocks as well. It is therefore often of benefit to tranquilize the mare if there is no way to immobilize her, or if she is in any way fractious.

As far as the actual drug use, there is no greater risk with the use in a pregnant mare than there is in a non-pregnant mare.
