  1. Mare pools fluid post-ovulation but not post-breeding... help!

    Looking for some suggestions, and, as always, hoping Kathy or Jos can chime in as well.

    I've read up extensively on what can be done for delayed uterine clearance in mares, but almost all the...

    Ditto this.

    Very sorry this happened to you, OP. It's my worst nightmare.

    My cats don't go outside unless they're wearing a leash/harness and are supervised. And that's really only my male...

    Ok, here goes.

    First of all, and please don't be offended - this is not meant to be snarky or personal, just take it at face value:

    If you start off your cat ownership with the attitude of...

    Ok, OP finally clarified that she is feeding wet food on top of the prescription dry. That works.

    I'm still not clear on what exactly the OP is feeding - are you feeding your cat Science Diet CANNED food, or SD kibble?

    If it's kibble, then you're simply lucky that the crystals are temporarily...

    While I do think the OP should invest in some more in-depth diagnostics (kissing spines is a definitely a possibility), I will nonetheless play devil's advocate:

    A couple of things -
    First, please don't do the "turnout with one group during the day, turnout with a different horse/group at night". That'll just lead to stress. Horses thrive on routine and...

    I have learned the hard way that there is absolutely, unequivocally, NOTHING you can do/say/provide/write down that will ensure that this will not happen. Nothing. If it's going to happen, it's going...

    What if NOT calling means you're responsible for the next time the dog lunges and bites? What if the next time it's a toddler and the dog mangles her little face?

    I would be thinking about how awesome my mare is and how I want a carbon copy, just younger. :winkgrin:
