My vet recommending my bringing in my 20-year-old pregnant mare for a "power float" in February, which will require sedation. My mare will be in her 9th month of pregnancy then. Are there risks to the foal (or the dam) associated with sedative drugs? I don't know what drug they plan on using. The mare is in good body condition (in, fact approaching obese) and will stand quietly for a regular (not "power") floats.

Why risk it now with her pregnant? I waited to do my mare til after she delivered to have her teeth done. Talk with your vet find out why this must be done now and what are the disadvantages of waiting. Are you having trouble keeping her weight up? Does she have a lot of sharp points? When did she last have her teeth floated?

They were last floated 18 months ago. Keeping weight on her is no problem - in fact, it's a constant struggle to keep her from getting too obese.

You can check to see if she has any sharp points by just placing you hand in her mouth slowly .. I have done this with my mare and it does give me an idea of the structures in her teeth and the sharp points on the out side of portion of her teeth.


When I asked my Vet about floating her teeth ( She does need sedation) he recommended that we hold off on doing it til after she delivered.

So unless there is a major problem I would hold of on any sedation until after delivery . If you can do a reg float and not sedate her then I would go that route...

That is just my opinion
