I have a mare that was bred to Don Schufro. Took 1st try. We checked her at 17 days and there was some mild uterine edema. Vet wanted her put on regumate just in case. He also drew blood for a progesterone test. It came back at 5.1 so we weaned her off the regumate.
We did the 30 days check today. She is definatly still pregnant, no edema, normal sized ebryo everything looked good, BUT the heart rate was a bit slower than normal. My vet didn't feel like it was so slow or horrible that the pregnancy wasn't viable but was a bit concerned about it and does want to recheck at 60 days.
My mare is a bit "kicky" and can be a witch so she is sedated for the US. Would this affect the heartbeat of the embryo? My vet didn't really feel that it should since she is so early on in her pregnancy.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Will the sedation affect both mom and baby this early in the game? Just for reference she was given 1 cc of xylazine, .3 of Dorm. and .2 torbugesic.
I'd like to know about that also...it's a good question.
