I have a TB mare that has a cover date of 05/31. I just purchased her from an auction so I am not familiar with her previous foaling history aside from the fact that she has carried two foals to term and has been pregnant every year for the last three. I just had my vet u/s her seven days ago to check for any abnormalities as she was not eating very well. All was fine. This morning I discovered small blood spots in her shavings. I would be inclined to think that she has bleeding varicose veins?! However would this be normal with her having three months left until her due date? I was under the impression varicose veins usually only bleed when a mare is heavy in foal? Thanks :-)

I would like to add that she is only seven years old and that is not very big (pregnancy wise).

Anyone??

Hopefully my vet will see her today ....

I've never had that experience, so I'm no help. I just didn't want you to feel ignored, LOL! I'm glad your vet is coming out.

Let us know what your vet says. I didn't know that varicose veins would bleed. That sounds scary. What is her name and due date?

I also have never had this experience but I know with pregnant women this can happen even with a few months to go so maybe it's the same? Keep us posted on what you find out.

The vet thinks it is unlikely (but not impossible) that she has bleeding varicose veins because she is so young. So she getting a double dose of regumate and sulfatrim in the chance that she has seperation or infection. We have three months to go ... we shall see what happens. My fingers are crossed :-)

Mood Swings, what is Sulfatrim? I've never heard of it before? But with double doses of both ReguMate and Sulfatrim, I'm sure she'll hang on to her foal. I have finger crossed for you too!

I will be praying for you and your mare. Three months is a while, keep her relaxed and calm. Hugs

Placental separation and/or placentitis is likely to be identifiable by ultrasound. Did the vet perform an ultrasonic evaluation before offering the suggested diagnosis? If not, it should be performed as there are other drugs that should be given in conjunction with the two provided that may be equally beneficial, or even more so.

Hi Jos :-)

My vet u/s her approximately 10 days prior to me noticing the bloody discharge and at that time there were no abnormalities. The placenta measured 0.47 in thickness. He did not have time? to check her last week. I am assuming after her two week treatment we will re-u/s her to determine if there have been any changes. Have you heard of young mares with bleeding vericose veins? Thanks 8)

Have the mare checked again with ultrasound.

Although varicous veins are more common in older horses, they are not unheard of in younger horses. Evaluation of the vagina with a speculum should answer that question.

Sounds like a second opinion from a different veterinarian might be in order...
