We just got a new mare and when we went to get her was told the stud had gotten out 5 days prior and bred all the mares. We were asked if we wanted a foal and although she would have a gorgeous baby do not want a pregnant mare this summer--this horse is for my daughter to show this year becasue her horse will foal in May. We told him no--he works for a vet clinic so he gave her a shot(not sure what it was) and told us it should make the embryo abort--or not attach or whatever--it should take care of the pregnancy. So my question is will it? Will just one dose of whatever he gave her take care of it?

He probably gave her oxytocin, as far as I know it does work well in the early stages, at least the one time I had to use it for that reason it did, and yes, we only gave her the one shot. You'll still need to get an ultrasound done to make sure that it worked.

Sorry, I don't know what I was thinking there - it wouldn't have been oxytocin, and for the life of me the name of what he would have given her is escaping me. The same stuff they use to bring on a follicle, it makes them sweat and sometimes get a little colicky. Someone will know the name of it! Anyway it did work for my mare.

Lutalyse :-) giving it 5 days post breeding probably will be to early. I beleive to be effective it needs to be given 6 days after ovulation. I agree have her ultrasounded to be sure.

Prostaglandin :-)

"Lutalyse" is a brand-name for prostaglandin (which is the drug name).

I agree that 5 days after breeding is probably too soon for the prostaglandin to work reliably, and I would suggest a second dose about 6 days after that, plus an ultrasound to confirm successful reduction (i.e. no pregnancy).

Yes I think Prostaglandin was the name. I will call the vet and see if I can get another dose to give her. I wonder if I will need to bring her in or if they will just sell it to me

I spoke with my vet and he said yes that was too early to give her the shot and that I should wait 10 days then give her a shot of Lutalyse and that I could just pick it up from them. I'm glad I called him--really don't want a foal next fall out of this mare.Thanks all for the info
