I have a 21yo mare who had not had a foal in 4 years. I got her this year and after going over her records it showed that she had not been getting in foal until really late in the year. Did bloodwork and it showed a low normal thyroid so we put her on Thryo-L, one scoop, once a day. Bred her one time in April and she took. She is still in foal. We did the repeat bloodwork to see where her levels fell and they were back in the middle normal range.

We've just moved to a new town in a new state and my old vet will not write me a RX so I can buy more Thryo-L because she is not licensed in my state.

Wondering if it is ok to wean her off of the Thyro-L?????

There are mixed opinions, and little research that supports either the benefit or the lack thereof of Thyro-L in the mare. Consequently, there is no research that will give a definitive answer on whether to maintain the treatment or not.

If you have all of your previous documentation (tests and billing etc.) regarding the mare, and present it to a veterinarian in your new State, in all probability they will write a new prescription for you for it. All you can do it ask!
