Ok here's the story, my 4 year old Spanish Mustang (maiden) is due anytime within the next few weeks...vet thinks first week of April (she was bred in the wild before I bought her so this is the vet's guess). Anyhow I've been checking her udder and vulva everyday, and last week noticed she had amber wax on her teats for the first time, and when i removed it to see what color milk I could get, I got blood. She also had a slight bit of yellowish discharge in her vulva. Called the vet and he said probably just mastitis, and said to come pick up some powdered antibiotics (can't remember the name of it...maybe Omniprim?). He told me to give it to her till it's gone, that's been a week now, she only has 1/2 a dose left, and I'm still getting blood from both teats, but the discharge is gone. I plan on calling the vet, and then another for a 2nd opinion, but thought I would see what input I could get here tonight.

Well, I guess I was worried for nothing, today when I went to feed she had clear milk coming from her udder, and only one side had a tiny bit of blood with it. Got ahold of the vet and he said it sounds like everything is going good.

Alright, I need help, or opinions, or anything. After being on Uniprim (powdered antibiotic) for 12 days straight Chilli still has blood coming from both udders. She has 2 holes in each teat, one has blood, one has clear fluid. Same on both teats. It's the front holes that are expressing blood. Her udder is progressing and getting bigger everyday, no discharge from vulva and it's scarlet red inside, the foal is active and I see lots of kicking and moving, her appetite and mood is normal, she's been rolling alot, and her body temp seems to go up in the evenings (I don't take her temperature but she feels warmer to the touch) and she's due anyday now, vet's guess was April 1st. Today she's slab-sided from her girth to her rear (no indention at flanks). Is this mastitis??? If it is, shouldn't the antibiotics have cleared it up? I'm calling the vet first thing Monday morning to see if he can get out here. Has anybody else experienced something like this?
