recently a tumor was discovered and the mare is still carrying a viable fetus the tumor is huge and adhering to the abdominal wall I am going to try to get her to term but that is a few months away Any suggestions? I will have a surrogate mare here for the foal should we get that far. I put her on progesterone and give her banamine daily so she'll eat...any other suggestions???

Well we have ruled out granulosa or abcess thru blood work. The consensus opinion is lymphoma but a biopsy has not been done. The reason for not subjecting her to a trip to Purdue and the laprascope is that it doesnt really matter what type -oma it is. It looks like her life will be fairly short as in weeks rather than months. But I keep pouring the food into her and she eats well if given banamine. Her weight loss is quite dramatic and I try to replace what the tumor is gobbling up with high calorie chow and legume hay.I guess my question is this: what all can I do that will not cross the placental barrier and destroy the fetus. Banamine- bute? The fetus is alive as of last week via ultrasound. A long armed doctor could barely reach it beyond this mass which is bigger than a basketball and adheres to the abdominal wall. She is not due until late May. We'll keep trying to keep her alive until the end.

You do not identify the location of the tumor, but I am presuming by reference to a "granulosa" that you are referring to the ovary? Be aware that it is not uncommon during pregnancy for mares to develop structures on the ovary that are essentially an annovulatory hemorrhagic follicle but will present as an enlarged ovary and per ultrasound will show a not dissimilar structure to a granulosa cell tumor. This, coupled with the not uncommon occurrence of a pregnant mare developing stallion-like behaviours as a result of fetal hormone activity, can result in a misdiagnosis of possible neoplasia.

While the use of NSAIDs in the pregnant mare are not ideal, if that is the only way to maintain an adequate comfort level in the mare in order to maintain pregnancy, then there is little option. You can discuss with your veterinarian the various aspects related to digestive problems etc. A possible alternative is to use Meloxicam which is a little easier on the gut, and which can be obtained from BET Pharmacy.
