I have had my mare ultrasound checked at 17 days and the vet did not find an embryo and said the uterus did not feel very toned and she found a follicle of 3.4 X 2.5, but the mare never came back into heat over the course of the next few days. Vet is young with back ground in breeding just over the course of a couple of seasons. I think I should have the mare checked again before I try to rebreed. She would be at 25 days today. If the same vet rechecked her what are her chances of missing it at this stage or should I go through the uncomfortable siutuation of requesting a different vet.
If you are going to consider short cycling then I would definatly U/s her agian to be 100 % sure because if she is in foal you will abort. At 25 days you should see a heartbeat if their is a viable pregancy. I think it would be hard for the vet to miss it a second time. but if you are uncomfortable with it ask for a new vet. Even experience repro vets can miss early on.
