Is it possible that a mare is still pregnant even if the vet did an ultrasound at seven months and didn't find anything?

Yes. Most vets won't even do an ultra sound that late. Have you had her palpated?

Everybody believed the vet and he said he's sure that she is not pregnant. This might sound funny but what is palpating? I'm german and I have never heard that word before.

Thanx

Iris- by 7 months, the rather large fetus can not fit onto the ultrasound screen. No responsible vet that is familiar with reproduction would use ultrasound for a pregnancy check at that stage.

Was this mare checked in foal eariler and perhaps he was checking on a particular problem?

To determine a pregnancy at that stage a manual palpation is neccessary. A palpation is an examination to feel for any existing pregnancy. It would be very obvious at 7 months.

No, she wasn't checked before since we didn't think she took. She has just been getting bigger and her belly seemed to be on the right side a lot. Now her belly is centerd and we put her on a diet after the vet told us that she is not pregnant. She has lost some weight around the hipbones but her belly is still there and we think it has gotten even bigger. I'll have my normal vet come and check her tommorrow if he's got time. I just don't want to keep her on a diet if she is pregnant.

Thanks
Iris
