My 6 yo Hann mare has puffiness and tightness in the bag and on the stomach just in front of the bag occasionally. It goes down after work. The vet has said that it's nothing to worry about, just wash daily with antibacterial soap. This helps most of the time but it still flares up.

What could be causing this?

This is known as edema. Some mares get it, some don't. I no expert on this but excersizing does make it go down. It's not anything to get worried about.

My 8 yr. old open mare seems to have a Mastitis this morning in one of her teets. The right side is huge....as if she were a nursing mare with Mastitis. The area is very tight and hot. I applied DMSO to the area to aid with swelling. Do you know of anything else that can be done to aid with her discomfort and swelling? Should I give her 1 g of Bute as well?

If she has mastitis she will probably need antibiotics. Don't fool with it too long, if there is heat, sweelling,discomfort. Red streaking in the skin (if you can see it). All signs of infection. Contact your vet.

I have a similar question regarding mammary development. I have a 20yr old mare (2 previous foals) that I tried to bred last year and she aborted at about 7 months. I'm trying to breed again this year but her cycles have been irregular. On one cycle 2 months ago she was bred AI but was open at 17 day U/S. She finally came in heat last week and a culture/cytology was done early (came back clean) but there was anechoic uterine fluid 3 days later so we decided to wait until next heat to breed. So finally here is my question : since her abortion, she has had more than normal mammary development - not huge or hot and painful but definately not what they were before breeding last year. An this week (the week following her estrus) the mammary glands are even more developed (can actually express watery milk). This enlargement is definately the mammary glands and not edema or fat which I've seen in some mares in front of the mammary glands. I'm wondering if she has some hormonal issues and if so, what could I test her for? Thanks - breeding mares is not for the faint of heart....
