I went to check my mare last night, she is 3 months pregnant now - last night she seemed to have a very loose vulva (similar to pre-foaling), i checked inside and there was a tiny amount of yellow (1/4 of a 5p or similar size) discharge/mucus looking stuff.
In addition, I checked her teets and was able to squeeze out what looked to be milk, she has never completely dried up since her last foal, always had clear fluid available but never milky colour
I brought her in and once back from the field the vulva looked normal again, and it was fine this morning
Do I need to get her checked out or am I worrying over nothing?
If it were me, I would not want to worry, so I would have her checked out by a vet. It could be absolutely nothing at all or maybe she needs something to help her along, such as Regumate to keep her pregnancy going. I would want to be in the know, so to speak.
Maybe when you had checked her last night she had just finished peeing and you just didn't know--hence a loose vulva and yellow discharge........ as far as the milk being milky looking could just be hormonal. call the vet and see what they say. I wouldn't be too worried though
