failure of passive transfer

Postby dmari26 » Sun Feb 17, 2013 5:44 pm

hiya. i had a foal born 31st jan 2013. we brought the mare in august last year. she was always a round barrelled looking mare but never looke pregnant. long story short, mare rejected the filly and filly didnt get enough colostrum. at 48 hrs old she was taken for a plasma transfusion. they had to stop and start it twice before giving up as she was reacting very very badly to it. we took her home and hoped for the best despite being told we would be lucky if she made it to a week old. cant remember exact number for the IGG but it was below 200 which i understand is pretty bad. anyway she is now 17 days old, she feeding, playing, full of life and energy and not in the least bit sick looking. we know its very early days bu has anyone ever had a sucess story with a foal like this?

We had a mare reject and attack her foal last year. He was never able to nurse, so got no colostrum. His IgG was non-existent. He was also attacked by a dog and had a grapefruit sized piece of skin pulled loose on his right hip. Our vet gave him Seramune, IM penicillin and sent us to Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in Lexington, KY. They diagnosed him with Failure of Passive Transfer, Neonatal Maladjustment Syndrome (Dummy Foal) and Sepsis. He received two plasma transfusions, IV antibiotics, and a "cocktail" of medications IV for his Neonatal Maladjustment Syndrome. The first 7 days of his life were spent in Neonatal Intensive Care. They saved his life and he is perfectly normal today. He is a miracle baby. This is a picture of Blazer today at 11 months old:
