Would like to wean a 15day pregnant mare off of Regumate.

Plan to submit a progesterone assay.

Assuming the assay is within 'normal' limits, would there be any reason not to slowly decrease the Regumate? Or would it be wiser to wait for a 'safer' pregnancy stage?

Hx:
Not a problem mare, Regumate was started (day 5) as a 'prophylactic' measure.
(Bred 1st heat after foal heat,all looked normal other than a small amount of uterine fluid pre and post ov which resolved with Oxy.)

Perform a series of progesterone assays - 3 or 4 a day for 3 or 4 days in a row - to get an accurate level. A single reading will not offer a reliable diagnosis.

Prophylactic progestin therapy is way too common in our opinion - follow that link to review our thoughts... :-)

So... yes, assuming you do get a normal reading (and that is...? :-)), it is more than reasonable to stop the treatment.

And incidentally - progestin therapy can aggravate retained uterine fluid issues...
