My mare was found to have placentitis on Friday last week after three days of sweeting and colic symptoms and finely discharge. The vets have put her on antibiotics, regumate and Ventipulmin. The discharge has now stopped and she is not currently sweeting so hopefully the infection is under control. I have got 60 days until she is safe to foal. From your experience what are the chances of getting through 60days with out her aborting and is there anything else I should be doing thanks

There are no standard percentages on success. It will depend entirely on the degree of placental separation and damage that has occurred.

You may also want to consider talking to your veterinarians about putting the mare onto estrogen therapy. That has been demonstrated as having a beneficial result in placentitis mares. There is research that supports these findings which can be reviewed on the BET Pharm website here and here. You may wish to print them off and give them to your veterinarian if they have any question about the validity of estrogen therapy.

She has just had a rescan the placenta has gone down from 24mm to 17mm so hopefully going the right way. He is going to read the bits you gave me thanks.

When should i stop the regumate? the vet has told me to stop it once she has foal but i would think this could increase the chances of her tearing during foaling if the cervix can not open correctly? or am i getting this wrong. thanks

Mares will foal or abort through Regumate (which raises the question of why people think it can stop an abortion!!), but generally it is recommended to cease Regumate and Prostaglandin-release inhibitors (such as Banamine) around day 300-310.
