Hi everyone! Im hoping JOS can give me some insight. I have a 7 year old maiden mare due in march 2012. she is at 213 days and a few days ago i noticed pitting edema near her belly button. well not her right side teat area is hard like a hard fat roll. it isnt warm to the touch but it looks like she is trying to start developing her udder? im not sure its hard to describe. I am calling vet in am and having her seen about. She is due for her 7mths rhino today but since this has come up i am waiting until she is seen by the vet. Im worried it might be placentitis? she hasnt been on any fescue and her pregnancy overall has been going ok.

Inappropriate mammary development and lactation is the most common indication of an impending abortion (if there is an indication), not ventral edema, which is not uncommon during pregnancy, especially in older mares.

Having said that, if you have concerns, get her checked by a veterinarian!
