Retained Fetal Membranes in the Mare (off this site)
I read this article and was wondering if anyone has gone threw this?

A mare we bought at auction had her first foal at 3 the breeder/seller told us she retained part of the placenta but was not home for the foaling, she then became sick. I also remember that he said something about cutting her open. She has a slight scar all the way down, from her vulva about 8 or 10 inchs. This "scar" or mark is bearly noticable we got her in early 00 she foaled in 99.

before we take her for an ultrasound has anyone had a mare really sick with this and recover to breed again??

I've known of mares who were septic that after being treated were able to foal again however I have not known any that were operated on. I think it would depend on the amount of tissue damage.

Well hes kind of a shady type breeder. We got her at auction. I have never heard of a mare being cut like this. I thought they gave a shot and could make the uteris "let go? of what ever was still in there.

thankyou

I had a mare develope metritis after foaling last year. We managed to get her in foal but she aborted very early (less then 45 days). I opted not to breed her back. She will be covered early this year so I have my fingers crossed that gets in foal easily. Your vet will be able to tell you what kind of shape her uterus is in. If she has alot of scar tissue in her uterus, you will have more of a battle on your hands. Best of luck to you :-)
