Has anyone out there had any experience with the rupture of the pre-pubic tendon in the pregnant mare??
How can you tell the difference between that and a bad ventral edema?
Thanks in advance

I don't have any personal experience but it seems to me edema would feel different than a ruptured pre-pubic tendon. They talk about it about half way down the page here ..

My mare is at day 301 today. She has had the typical swelling in front of her udders and she had the slightest sign of beginning to bag on Wednesday but today, Friday, she had quite a bit of Edema on her vent midline. So much so that under her belly if you press your finger the dimple remains quite some time. Well I that was enough for me to get nervous so I called the vet and he came over and saw her this evening. He said to get her out and do more hand walking..(she is already getting turn out for a few hours each day) Her digital pulses were good. He also said to move up her "move" date a week. Alhaja will be going to the Equine hospital to foal out due to the fact that last year at this time she had a red bag delivery and we lost the foal. So now I am getting nervous with this edema! Has anyone else had there mare have this and what did you do to help resolve it? Thanks!

Jan one of my mares had so much edema it looked like a 6in. shelf under entire abdomen. She had 3 acres to roam and would run around with the other mares. My vet said he had never seen a mare with that much edema.
It disappeared within 3 days of her foaling.

Thanks Cathy, How many days into your mares pregnancy did the edema show? At the bare min. my mare needs to go another 30 days to be at 332 days. She was AI'd so we know exactly when she got pregnant. Thanks for the encouragement.

Jan My mare was also AI'd and she delivered at 319 days. I would guess her edema started to show a month before she delivered. This was not the first time she has gotten such a huge amount of edema. She has had healthy foals every time.

Thanks again Cathy you have really helped me so much! Today the edema is the same not worse and my mare is acting like herself so I will just keep up with the turn out time and walks :-) Thanks again.
