Jos, I have a question.... When we do our early preg tests...16 to 18 days depending on weekends...lol...the vet mentions the tone of the mares uterus and in those he is not happy with, suggests Regumate up till 45 days. If all looks and feels well at that point we take them off it. A rare few stay on it. Is this the way to go, or should we be doing something differently? It seems to work, but who knows if anything was going to go wrong without it?
Jennifer, I had a mare that didn't get preggie for two yrs...she aborted a foal at 5 months, we don't know why, then had an infection that took too long to clear up, so I didn't breed her...but, since she aborted, we put her on a generic Regumate at five days after she was bred this past year...her hormones were not quite right for maintaining her pregnancy. I gave her 1cc every five days for 2 months, then began the weaning off it process that lasted another 2 months...we checked her hormone levels at that time and they were perfect. She is now 7 months along. Talk to your vet...IF your mare needs help maintaing a pregnancy, it will help her...but you don't need to buy Regumate...the generic progesterone works just as well and is far cheaper to use. Hope this helps.
