I have a 5 year old maiden welsh mare that is approaching her "due" date. ( I know that date is subjective)
She is eating and drinking normally, is soft around the tailhead, stretched vulva. Lots of fetal movement. Her hips now have a hollow in front of them, but she only has a small bag at this point. Very uncomfortable little girl.
My worry arises with the arrival of a thick white discharge from her vulva that popped up two days ago.
I called all 3 repro vets in my area, one didn't seem too concerned, and the other two are away on seminars.
To me, this would indicate an infection. Is it safe to administer anything to her? Has anyone has this experience? What would cause an infection this late in pregnancy? I keep her area very very clean. Any advice would be wonderful.
My mare had this for a day, that i noticed, it was around the 315 mark if I remember correctly. Its gone now and my vet was not concerned. Possibly the beginning of her passing her plug (?) does she have a temp? Check that it stays white, if it turns green-ish or she has a temp then yes get a vet out there ASAP.
(i am not a vet nor in any way shape for form have any medical knowledge beyond personal experience)
