Hi
I have a really nice mare who is a granddaughter of Poco Bueno. I had her AIed about a month and a half ago to a son of Smart Little Lena & grandson of Peptoboonsmal. So pretty much this baby was going to be very valuable! I wormed my mare about a month before she was bred & told the people that regularly worm the horses where I board not to worm any of my horses, they have all been wormed. I went on vacation & came back to find out that she wormed all of my horses again, anyway. The day after I took my mare to her regular ultrasound appt. and everything looked ok but we wouldnt know for sure for another 5 days. I took her back again for her regular 45day ultra sound & she had lost the foal. Can anyone tell me if they think the worming had anything to do with it?

I wormed mine at around 35 last year and the preg went smoothly and the filly was born perfect, no probs. The vet had advised me to worm at that time and even told me which wormer I should use.

Im sorry to hear of your loss though - I looked at a stallion related to poco bueno for my mare I think it was Jazz mighty mouse - very nice breeding indeed but I couldnt justify paying the stud fee and then having to rely on everything else running smoothly to keep costs down. I hope you can get your mare bred next time.

Kaylee,
A lot really depends on the type of dewormer used. There are dewormers out there that are safe for pregnant mares, but you should still never introduce anything into the body prior to 60 days, unless of course it is to save the life of the mare and it is done under vet advice.
I believe Quest is one of the deworming products that states it is NOT safe for pregnant mares. And I would also be a little leary of generic deworming products also. Unless they have literature stating that testing has been done on pregnant mares and it is found to be safe.
Sorry for your loss.

Hi Kaylee,
Sorry for your loss. Did you ask to see the syringes of the TYPE wormer used? They might still have some leftover tubes there, so go look. SOME specify NOT for pregnant mares. If it was generic Ivermectin product they were ok, as those are the same % as the name brand. There is a very SAFE margin with those.
