Hi, my original post didnt go through. I have shires and was curious if 1cc is the right amount of oxytocin for the protocal? Thanks, Casey

0.5 - 1.0 ml pre-ovulation. 1 ml post-ovulation. Same as other horses.

My question is, if you are covering a mare more than once in a heat cycle, do you give the Oxytocin after each cover, or begin the series after the last cover? Of course I mean 4 - 6 hrs after the cover.

This is covered in the oxytocin protocol article. You are using the oxytocin to control post-breeding inflammatory response, so if you wait until after the last cover you will have an inflammatory pool there, which oxytocin will not be able to control in many cases.

Thanks. I did read that article (several times) but still wasn't sure whether or not to do it between covers. Luckily, I did go ahead and start the Oxy after one cover, and she was out of heat the next day! Worked out well.

I am, however, worried as she had fluid when ultrasounded with a 35 mm follicle. I asked about Oxy, didn't get a real answer, so she was not given oxy prior to breeding. That won't happen again. I almost hope she didn't settle and gives us another chance to do it better.
