Nurse mare needed ASAP DE. Update!
As stated in title ! Needed in S DE please call 302-228-9020.
Mare is currently holding her own. She has a ruptured uterine artery that luckily bled into the right broad ligament instead of the uterus or abdominal cavity creating enough pressure to slow or stop the bleed. Ultrasound shows a football sized hematoma. She received clotting meds and 5 liters of fluid. She is now up and her color is a little better but still not pink. Her milk production has drastically dropped due to her loss of fluid volume. Her day old filly has no interest in milk replacer at this time. We have even mixed it with some banked colostrum. She is getting some milk from the mare but we don't think enough. Mare is still not out of the woods so we still are looking to line up a nurse mare.
