My mare was bred June 27th and was confirmed pregnant. My sister has a mare (the mares are together along with a gelding) that she is having bred live cover at some point before too long. I'm wondering about stress possibly causing her to abort. My vet thought about possibly using ReguMate for a couple of days to maintain pregnancy. What are your thoughts on this?
Stress is also not a major contributory factor for embryonic loss, although increasing core temperature (for example by having a mare run around a lot in hot weather) has been suggested as having that potential. It may not be the stress of removing a companion (if that is your point) that could be the issue, but rather the increased core temperature if the mare becomes unhinged. If that looks like a possible sequela, the use of Regumate may be beneficial.
I'm sorry, I didn't reread my post to see how unclear it was. Yes, that's what I meant--when my sisters horse leaves and my mare gets all stressed out.
Thank you for that info. I didn't know that it was the temperature of the mare, not the stress.
