My mare had a pretty good delivery..11 mins from waters breaking to foal out, she was prety good afterwards, but the bag broke around the foal, and then the second piece took 7 hours to come away. She laid down alot, and then 12hours later, she started looking abit crampy, and laying down and when she laid down, she'd squirt abit of fresh blood.. about 200mls. this happened every 20mins. or so. She passed a small piece ( about bread plate size) of membrane then,but was still abit unhappy. I phoned the vet, and we started her on Utezyme pess. one last night, and one this morning, procaine penecillin 20ml last night, again this am, and each am for next 3 days. She had 2ml. oxytocin last night aswell, and tet tox. This morning she seems REALLY well, running and playing with the foal. She seemed to have no real loss at all over night, but then an hour after she was let out of the night stall, she squirted about 100mls. of chocolatey syrup looking blood. It's not offensive, and she doesn't seem unwell. She's not laying down at all that I've seen. Do you think we are on track with the possible retained membrane treatment? Is this blood normal? Is there anything else I could do? Here vagina and birth canal is very accessible. (not that I've had my arm up that many!!!!) but I had no trouble fitting the pessary, and was in up to my elbow. Can we do a "manual removal" of the membranes, if there are any left? I'm going to ring the vet, but just am curious as to what everyone else does. My vet is actually not very confident with horses..she admits that...and I actually spoke to another vet, miles away, who consulted on the treatment thus far. Then my local vet supplied it.}

Sounds like you need to get a vet out a manual removal could cause her to bleed to death so If I were you I would get a vet out that knows what to do.I hope all goes well for yall.Deena

Is the placenta out yet?
She may need more oxytocin - we have had a few retained placentas, and twice the vet had us give 2 or 3 more oxytocin shots. We've never had one that didn't eventually let go - but we call the vet out if it hasn't passed after 2 hours.
Keep monitoring her temperature, if it starts to rise call the vet again immediately.
Hope she'll be OK.
