Which do you prefer Regumate or P+LA? When do you start them after ovulation? My Vet suggested using P+LA. We have a mare that aborted her foal last year at 10 months, she was treated for infection. Then bred 2 times with no luck. Did Cytology this year and all is good. We have bred her 2 times and no luck. We have done the oxytocin protocol. He cycles have been very different, one was normal, the other she sat on the follicle forever. This time we skipped a cycle and brought her back in with lutalace, cycle is very normal this time. She is being bred AI with fresh semen. Vet suggested trying the P+LA as we are not sure why she is not taking. Any suggestions?
Vet has also expressed wanting to do a saline flush, he says he usually only does this on older mares to help get out the dead semen and what else is left after breeding. She was bred around 11 am on Fri, I am pretty sure she ovulated that night, bred her when she had a 40 and gave HCG. She was not interested in being teased Sat afternoon, and was striking today. Is it to late to do a flush, and should one be done.
Not sure what you want to use the P+LA/Regumate for, but we prefer the P+LA or Biorelease altrenogest, as mares will ovulate while on Regumate, which makes synchronization impossible in some instances.
I just responded to an almost identical question about lavage here.
