my mare is a seven year old danish warmblood. she has a 2 year old gelding and a yearling filly. the 2 year old was concieved using fresh semen at the stallion station in denmark. the yearling was concieved in the US on her foal heat using frozen semen. last year after the filly was born we tried to breed her (not on her foal heat). she had a nice size follicle which we follwed it grew very slowly, over five days and finally was big enough we gave her HCG but she never ovulated it. tried again next cycle same story. third cycle ttried ovuplant same thing. gave up.
this year my vet wants to use ovuplant only i think she's talking about stitching it to the vaginal wall? and removing it after ovulation. any ideas or comments. last year was very expensive after all those ultrasounds and no foal.
thanks

Current use protocol for Ovuplant is to place the implant in the labial lip when there is a follicle >3 cm in dameter present, and then remove it 48 hours later.

Not sure why you would lavage with oxytocin - usually it is injected. See the article on this site available by "clicking" here for more information. Note that a single dose is often not sufficient in susceptible mares.

You might also want to contemplate using P&E in order to pinpoint the ovulation - this hormone combination also has somewhat of a follicle stimulating effect.
