I have never had this happen but as they say, first time for everything. I had a mare who was great on Wednesday, we pinched a twin and went on about our business. I went to give Banamine last night for the pinching and she had projectile diarrhea so I put her in and gave her meds called my vet who was out this morning as I was not alarmed. This morning the mare had gotten worse so I took her to the University where she had to be put down, apparently she went septic from the twin pinching. Anybody else have this happen?

Cathy, I'm sorry to hear about your mare, that's terrible! I'm surprised how fast she went from bad to worse. What a shame...

What does that mean she went septic? I've never heard of that before.

Septic meants a systemic infection. It can rage like wildfire in a short time.

Cathy: I am so sorry to hear that. I can't believe how fast it happened. (((hugs)))

Cathy~I have missed you posting on the board and I am SO SO sorry for your loss! Septic from a twin pinching? Was she bred back on foal heat ....could this have been something underlying and the procedure just compromised her to far? Hugs so sorry

She was a barren mare with a pretty good produce record. She cultured clean for her breeding and obviously got in foal, just too much for her....

The uterus and conceptus should be sterile, so creation of an infection in a sterile environment would be unlikely. I would ask for more details from the examining veterinarian at the University.

You might also want to ask if there was any trauma involving the rectum - a rupture into the peritoneal cavity perhaps... that would explain the septic condition... :-(

Cathy, I was talking with my husband last night about your terrible ordeal with your mare, his response was "the vet ruptured the rectum".

Regardless how it happened, it's extremely sad. Again, I'm so sorry...

Wow Cathy I am so sorry for your loss :-( I have NEVER heard of such a thing! I would think the rectum being damaged by the procedure sounds more plausible. Again so sorry.

RIP to your mare :-(

Cathy, I'm very sorry for your loss. I agree with Mood Swings....could her colon have been torn and she developed peritonitis from feces in the abdominal cavity? It does sound more logical....

Again, you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

It would be unlikely to have been a colon tear, but rather - as I noted above - damage to the rectum involving the peritoneal cavity.
