I am new here. I thought I posted this question earlier, but now I can't find it.

Is anyone familiar with this procedure? I have a mare that is a Champion but started having problems last year. She is 18, but has only had 1 foal. That was 10 years ago.

We had a caslicks done today, but vet recommended looking into this procedure, but not sure why? Any information would be helpful.

Oh, her rectum is kind of suddenly (in the past few months) sucked way way in, and she sometimes pee's when she runs.

I don't understand the question....do you want to know why your vet told you to look into it? I believe I'd call the vet back and ask "why did you say that? " Maybe he just wants you to be aware of possible outcomes and timeframe for removal?

My vet said she didn't know if it was necessary, but suggested I should look into it. I am really looking for more information on the procedure and what it is for.

I don't want to worry about it if the castlicks procedure will take care of infection problems. However if this procedure would make her more comfortable while she is running and not pee, I would do it.
I will also go on the "looking for a Reproductive Vet" thread. I have no idea where to start, and my vet is very rural and just trying to help.

there is an article on here about casliks...you might check it out. I have never had to do it, so don't know anything other than what I've read about it.

I think she is asking for information about the perineal body transection. The caslik has already been performed.

If your mare is pooling urine, then a perineal resection may assist in preventing it, whereas a Caslick's procedure may make it worse.

Thanks!! I pretty much felt I had to do the Caslicks because of the position the vulva has taken. It was open almost looked like a shelf. She has probably had an infection or 3 from it so far. I can't believe I didn't notice it sooner. But the caslicks was to address not getting poop into the vagina, at least I think that is what I understood. Maybe the other was to help with the peeing.

I finally found a little information, and it doesn't look like a major operation. In my mind, it seemed like it would be, but the article said it is a local not a general anesthetic and done in the office. BUT they leave the cuts open to drain so the horse has to stay stalled for 2 weeks with a lot of constant care. Anyway, Thanks for all the information.
