I had a mare checked today at day 15. The vet found what appeared to be a normal, healthy 15 day conceptus. The mare had good tone.

The vet commented that the conceptus was located at the tip of the uterus, rather than at the base of one of the horns and that because of this I could give Regumate until the heartbeat check.

This is a mare who has historically never received Regumate, and has had no prior history of absorbing or loosing pregnancies.

I understand that the conceptus is in the "mobility" phase up until approximately day 16.

Can I assume that we just happen to view the embryo while it is still mobile (and that it should migrate to the proper position)?

Would Regumate be beneficial in this situation?

Thank you!

If her tone was good I would not give the Regumate. It is just floating around.

It's your call, but as the conceptus does not normally "fix" until about day 16 post-fertilisation, I don't really see a need for Regumate use... or even suggesting it! :-)
