HI-I do realize stress is one of the main factors involved in loosing a pregnancy. I will be transporting a 30 day preg mare from Guthrie,TX to south of Kansas City, MO this weekend. On the trip down I gave her some bute to help w/ the ride as she is crippled ( plus the trailer bedded heavy in sawdust for cushion) ... I would like to give her some for the return trip but dont want to jeopardize this baby. Please comment ...

Hi Susan, I am a very VERY novice breeder so I am not able to give you any sound advice, however my vet did tell me about a study that was carried out indicating that administering bute around day 40 of a pregnancy is thought to be linked with a cleft palate. Best to avoid it...

About 13-14 years ago I had to begin to bute a mare that was checked just in foal... she founderend due to a allergic reaction to pennicilian. I had to bute the mare basically from the beginning of her term and the baby was healthy with no complications and is a mature horse now doing great.... You must keep the mare comfortable from the beginning.. She is the one that is alive for now and producing for you , in my opinion her health comes first before any baby. If she is not with you then you get no baby.

You might ask your Vet which would be better/safer bute or banamine...
