We inseminated last Friday (the 9th). The uterus looked good, no fluid. She was ovulating as we inseminated so only one insemination which I was happy about.
She got 1.5ml(30units) oxytocin 4x a day for 2.5 days, and recieved IM antibiotics for 5 days post breeding. (The IM antibiotics might have been more for my peace of mind, though the vet is developing a nice little nervous tick.)
My vet cut me off cold turkey on Regumate and progesterone. I am going through Regumate withdrawl, symptoms can include: Nausea, sweaty palms, panic attacks, and uncontrolable eating of ice cream. I picked up the phone to call and beg for Regumate three times on the following Monday, but managed to control myself.
Because of 4th of July weekend, I won't be able to get anyone out for the day 16-18 check, but will have her checked July 10th--although I will have a pretty good idea from the teaser stallion where she is at by then.
I'm so nervous, I can't hardly stand to look at her these days. All I do is walk by and pick up her tail to look for discharge lately.
I have my fingers crossed for you! We tried breeding my mare AI for the first time June 3rd. We only got one dose and I had her checked on June 21 only to be open and ready with another 43 follicle getting ready so we ordered more semen to be flown in counter to counter from Florida. We inseminated June 22 & June 23 rd. When ultasounded on the 6/23 she had ovulated. So on 6/24 doc did a antibiotic "douche" and oxytocin shots. Just in case she had a reaction to the extender. I am on pins and needles too. This mare lost a full term filly during delivery on 4/17/06 due to an undetected infection. My preg check is for July 10 at 12 pm. I will keep your mare and you in my prayers.....Good luck! Jan
Mine is at 12:00, "high noon"....CA time. I am going to work and taking my lunch to meet the vet. Hopefully it will give me something to make the morning go quickly. I will be looking anxiously for your post in the a.m. then. Here for you to share regardless. I, like you, are a nut who wants to be on the "foal" roller coaster ride!
