My mare needs to have her teeth done. She'll be at 70 days when I was planning to have them done since she'll already be at the vets. Will sedating her to do the work be a problem for the baby? I could wait until the end of the summer before I take her back to school. She'll be at about 140 days then.

There was a thread regarding floating pregnant mare's teeth on COTH a couple of months ago (of course, like 2 days after I had my mare's done). Apparently some believe that it isn't a good idea to float teeth at any time in a pregnancy, but not due to the sedation, something to do with bacteria being released by the floating itself. I don't remember the details, but perhaps you could search their site. My mare's were done in the last 30 days, the foal did have a couple of issues, but I really don't believe it was anything to do with the float, this was a really big foal out of a not-so-big mare and the things that were wrong with her are much more likely because of that fact.

Anthie,
I have to regularly sedate my mare with ace to do her hind feet. She is a wonderful mare to be around but had a bad accident as a yearling getting a hind leg stuck in barb wire. I bought her as a late 3 year old and her feet had never been touched! Needless to say we have had a very hard time with her in this respect. Anyway have to tranq her every time we get her feet done and she has had two very healthy correct foals and goes back in foal with one cover every year. She is now six and have a blacksmith that loves her despite her willingness to kill him and she is really doing much better. Might be able to get them done with out tranq sometime when she's 20. She only this year let me pick them up. It was like I won the lottery! Hope this helps.

TEB

I am just curious. How much ace have you given your mare, and approx what does she weigh?

Thanks!
