I was just getting ready to order a Foal Resuscitator Kit & Quick Check IgG Test Kit. I have an average of 4 foals a year and never needed the Foal Resuscitator Kit but was worring about my luck running out. Does anyone have one, used one, any advise? What about this one?

Heather, it looks like a great kit. This foal is my first. How does one know how to use the intubation tube though? Would need to know that much.

I wonder if you couldn't just breath into its nose?

Hey anyone, how many breaths per minute and chest compressions do we do on foals?

Heather, I have used both. In fact the last foal that was born I didn't have time to get the rescitator, so I just blew in his nose and pressed on his chest to get him breathing. You need to make sure there is no fluid in the nose or it will go straight to the lungs, then you have a real problem.

The IgG snap test I use also. If you can draw blood from the foal the test tells you if the foal received enough colostrum.

Paul, please forgive me if this is presumed that readers would know.

Did you use a stethascope? I mean, a person shouldn't just start pumping on the foal's chest, should they? Couldn't it cause arrythmias if the heart is beating? So I am presuming you meant that the foal wasn't breathing and the heart was not beating??????? I really need to learn horsey CPR!

This may be a bit of a dumb question, but how do you confirm there is no fluid in the nose?

I am *hopefully, if these darn mares will ever get pregnant* having 6 foals next year, and am considering getting a Foal Resuscitator.

Samantha, I get from your post that you are breeding all six without success? Are you sure it isn't the stallion? Just wondering.

Ckskip- We have on in foal to the Welsh stallion, still struggling with two more to him, I need to buy the breeding for a notoriously hard mare to get pregnant, still waiting for another preg check on one who had what looked like a pregnancy, but her uterus didnt feel like it should according to the vet, and one mare has to be bred with frozen semen that I had imported from Germany, so, I am not sure what to expect with that, I've never used frozen before.

Sorry, that post was a little misleading.
