I have a mare with low progesterone levels (based on prior cycles). Ovulated this past Sunday. I'd like to start her on Regumate on Thursday, but was advised by friend that I may need to do a post breed infusion? I know a post breed infusion is required for P4 injections, but is it also required for Regumate this early in the "hopeful" pregnancy?

Donna,

A uterine infusion is not required for Regumate.
And...it is a little bit late for post breed infusion.

Has your mare had uterine problems in the past?

As Solo correctly points out, there is no need for an infusion - and indeed, it is not an automatic requirement when using P4 injections, so you might want to review the reliability of your information source...

Did you perform multiple assays to determine that your mare needs progestin supplementation? It requires 3 or 4 assays a day for 3 or 4 days in a row to get an accurate determination for the need, a single test in insufficient and likely to be highly inaccurate. Regumate use (or other progestin therapy) is probably one of the most over-used (read "abused") treatments related to equine reproduction. You might want to review the article on this site called Does my mare need Regumate? (follow that link) - it might give you a different perspective to view the "need" from.

I have one mare that has been bred, but we are not sure if she is in foal yet, and another mare that is 25 days pregnant. Both mares are on Regumate, 10 cc's a day. The person doing the meds forgot to do it yesterday (Sunday). Is this a bad thing? What could happen? The mare that is 25 days pregnant had her progesterone checked last week, and it was 8.2, so the vet said she really doesn't need to be on Regumate, we are doing it as an extra precaution. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. I am really stressing out.
Thanks,
Angela

I would like to know the answer to Angela's question too. We have a mare on regumate that has a level of 1.5. I want to know what would happen if there was an emergancy or accident or something that caused her to miss the regumate for a day. Also, I give her 10ccs and put it as far back on her tounge as I can, but she trys her hardest to spit it out. Somethimes she will even spit out some hay that I missed (I try to make sure her mouth is clean, but doing it daily sometimes she slips some hay or grain past me in her cheek) and I know she is loosing some of the regumate with it... So, how much of a problem is this? Sometimes she will even go wash her mouth out in her water bucket. How important that she get every bit of that 10ccs? Am I just being paranoid? Since its not a paste I don't feel as confident that what I squirt into her mouth stays there....

I've found with some mares that object to anything being squirted into their mouth, that drizzling the Regumate onto a small amount of oats and offering it in a tub fixes that problem.

Haven't met one yet that turns that down!
