I have an odd question. I have a mare that I'm pretty sure needs her teeth floated. The vet can't do it while she is pregnant. I didn't think to ask if it can be done when she is lactating. If I breed her soon after foaling, there is a small window of opportunity to get it done.

Also, how would you handle the foal while the mare undergoes a procedure where she is sedated? This is new to me, so I want to make it as stress free as possible, if it can be done at all while the mare is still nursing the little critter.

It is generally agreed that sedation for something like teeth floating is not an issue even during pregnancy (after the 90 day mark), although your veterinarian may be familiar with something in your particular situation outside the ordinary. As that appears (from their response) to be a possibility, this is probably a question that you need to address to them directly.

Thank-you Jos. It was actually a person who manages quite a number of broodmares, that gave me that information. When the vet saw them, very early in her pregnancy, he said not to worry about it if her weight is good. But she drops grain a lot and is a senior mare, that has probably never had her teeth floated. I know it hasn't been done for at least three years. My mares will be vaccinated in a week or so. I will ask the vet then.
