I own a 8 y.o. TWH maiden mare. She has proven herself in the showring and decision was made to breed her this year with AI to a stud in TN. Vet was out and work up done-mare was still in transition heat. On 4/15 we started her on Luetalyse injection followed by oral Regumate x2 weeks followed by another Luetalyse injection after last dose of Regumate. Last dose of Leutalyse was on 4/28. Vet out today for ultrasound and mare has small ovaries and no changes in her uterus (although she is out of transition). Basically, she's doing NOTHING. Now the part that complicates everything: a friend of mine did her initial Luetalyce injection and because she misunderstood, she also injected her first dose of Regumate intramuscularly. After I discovered the error, I called the vet and we decided the biggest concern was an abscess at the injection site. This never occured. After the ultrasound today, my vet thinks the mare may still be absorbing the Regumate from the muscular injection but because no studies have really ever been done on the absorbtion rate of of oral regumate thru the muscle, it's all a guessing game, the vet doesn't really know either. The Vet is coming back out on Wednesday for another ultrasound and we'll see what's going on then. My current feelings are to just let nature take it's course and wait a few weeks and see where she's at with another ultrasound then (the breeder agrees). My question is this: has anyone out there ever come across this type of situation and know anything about the length of time before this regumate is eliminated from her system?? I'm not going to break the bank to get the mare pregnant. I love her too much to risk anything to her. Thank you ahead of time for your response!
