My maiden mare delivered 3 days ago. My vet said she had quite a bit of bruising and we gave her some banamine to make her more comfortable. He told me to watch her for any unusual discharge that might show she has an infection. He said not to worry about brown discharge.. but, yellow/green.. to call him.
Well, she's got brown syrup-like discharge right now. I'm wondering how long to expect this to go on. At what point do I start worrying about it? This is my first foaling experience too.. so, I don't want to bug my vet with every little thing.. but, I don't want to miss anything important for my mare's health either. thanks in advance!
I had one of my maiden mares do the same thing last year. Her's lasted up untill she came out of foal heat though it was significantly more apparent for the first few days. I brought her in for a checkup at 8 days post foaling because she was still having alot of discharge when she moved around alot. They said she was fine and that the brown was normal as part of the cleening out process. They recomended that we not try to breed her on foal heat, that was about it. We breed on the next cycle and she took the first time.
well, the brown goo only last a couple more days. Now, it's gone. Now, we are into the joys of foal heat and a dirty baby butt!
