I have a 13 year old irish draft mare that has uterine fluid issues. At an induced heat she had a 35mm follicle and 1cm of uterine fluid. I decided to try oxtocin every 6 hours. After 2 days of treatment fluid is still there and follicle is just 40mm. The next day she has ovulated totally against her normal routine.I know follicles are unpredictable but before i didnt use oxytocin prebreeding and she was very very predictable. Can prolonged oxytocin induce ovulation?
