I have recently bought a mare and found out that her cervix is torn and she has a very poor prognosis of maintaining a pregnancy. I would like to get a specailists opinion of this situation. I have had my vet look at her and I have also taken her to an equine hospital to be looked at. Both of them said the same thing but they also said that they are not repro specialists and would not know for sure if there is a chance she could be stiched up and carry to term. Neither of them have delt with a situation like this before. I would considering doing embryo transfer buit she is a TB mare and the Jockey Club will not register foals conceived like this. I am located in Southern Ontario, Canada. If anyone has had a situation like this before I love would any imput you have??? Thanks and I hope someone can help?

Hi! I suggest you have your vet call the St-Hyacinthe Veterinary hospital (Quebec). They have repro specialists over there (they won't return calls from non-vet so that is why I suggest your vet do the call...). My mare's cervix is too tight, even when she is in heat... The chances she could deliver the foal were very slim... I decided not to breed her after all. Too risky. But, I was at least glad that I received a professional advice. I undestand what you are going through. Give them a call as soon as possible because it is very difficult to get hold of them. Almost impossible during the breeding season! Good luck!
