I have a friend asking me about her vet's advice to use oxytocin q 12 hours for several days following manual removal of the rest of the placenta and 2 lavages. the fluid came back clear the second time and she is wondering whether she really needs to keep giving the oxytocin for 3 more days, twice a day. I have not had to deal with one this bad, so i said: Ask Jos!!! apparently one whole horn of the placenta was retained. the vet CUT part of the outer part OFF and left it to pass (with oxytocin). what came out was so badly stomped on, they couldn't tell if they got it all. Vet did not feel anymore in there, and fluid cleared up on second lavage. any ideas?

It would be unlikely that the use of oxytocin would cause a problem, while it might save trouble from a bigger problem. My greater concern would be if the rest of the placenta had in truth been removed...
