Foal loss

Postby wolfwoman » Sun Apr 20, 2014 8:37 pm

Madelyn foaled April 16. She had a beautiful champagne filly who died during birth. The imbicsl cord was wrapped around one of her front legs. By the time the vets were able to get her out she wsd dead. Needledd to say Madelyn had a very hard time. They have been flushing her uterus and giving her oxytocin and antibiotics. My questio is this. Before we breed her next year we will have her cultured
Jos is there anything else you would recommend?

If the loss was as a result of the trapped umbilicus (which it appears it was), then it was not related to anything that is preventable and there is therefore nothing that can be done other than normal pre-breeding evaluations, which are routine and not related to any prior loss.

I'm curious though why the vets are feeling a need to flush her and use oxytocin? If the umbilicus was the only abnormality and there was no retained placenta or repro tract damage, it seems a little puzzling to treat in that manner.

I'm sorry. I have been hit hard by this filly's death. I neglected to mention that the placenta was retained for about 30 hrs and the first few flushes were really dirty.
