I have a new mare I may breed this year. She is 18 and has several foals without issue last one was last spring...
I do not want a ton of vet bills so I asked the owner about her settling etc she said she settled first AI but that the vet did give her oxytocin.... she doesn't know why
Do you think it was because she was retaining fluid? she was not u/s directly after AI but 18 days later to confirm in foal
BUT when the vet did the AI if he saw too much fluid do you think he would have given her this?
I am breeding live cover so she won't be having an U/s the day she is bred--should I just plan on giving her oxycotin??

Hi Dorthy, uterine fluid is common post breading, it's the mares response to a foreign body/ semen. Oxytocin is useful in reducing this fluid. It can be given intramuscularly 4 hours after breeding and a 6 hourly intervals until ovulation. This is taken from an article on the articles page about the use of oxytocin post breeding. It might give you some further insight. "In highly susceptible mares, we have found it beneficial to continue oxytocin treatment on a six-hourly treatment schedule through to 3 days post-ovulation. Treatment after that time will not be beneficial, as the cervix will have closed sufficiently to prevent clearance of fluid".
