I am interested in ordering a quick check progesterone kit for a pregnant mare of mine. I'd like to check her levels prior to potentially taking her off of Regumate.

Both Exodus Breeders and Hamilton Research have these test kits available.

Can anyone tell me how the tests are administered and/or how much blood is needed? Should I assume blood needs to be drawn from the neck?

Thank you!

Not very much is required, but the blood does indeed need to be drawn from the jugular vein.

Keep the kits refrigerated when not in use, but make sure that you bring all reagents up to room temperature prior to use (i.e. take out of 'fridge for 3 or 4 hours prior to use, and have it sitting opened in a warm room). The test method is easy, but pay attention to the timing. Instructions are (should be) included.
