Last year we booked a "problem" mare to my stallionl. She conceived easily on the first cycle. She lost it at 8 months, thickened placenta/placentitis.

From what I know of her repro history her owner had tried to breed her, live cover to another stallion, for at least 2 years. She would repeatedly come back with infections. With the AI they were able to inseminate and assist her with uterine clearing and she easily conceived.

Any suggests as we go for a re-breed to help this mare maintain a healthy pregnancy? We are wondering if she should get Regumate throughout her pregnancy. My guess is the mare's cervix doesn't close well on it's own to prevent infection. I also suggested they consider monitoring her pregnancy via ultrasounds to watch for signs of placentitis so they could start medication if it is warranted.

Any other ideas?

If this were my mare:
  • I would want to know what the cytology was showing in conjunction with "infected" cultures.
  • I would closely evaluate the condition of the cervix pre-breeding.
  • I would use the oxytocin protocol outlined here.
  • I would contemplate putting the mare on an antibiotic during the breeding process - SMZ'z orally should assist.
  • I would suggest looking at suitability of a Caslick's procedure.
  • I would contemplate using 1 weeks antibiotics (typically SMZ's orally) each month during pregnancy after about 3 months.
  • I may (note may) use Regumate if the above didn't assist.
