    Default Need some jingles UPDATE - GOOD NEWS! p3

    My beloved retired Grade 1 event mare has had a terrible year. She is in foal to Mighty Magic for a March foal, but ever since she was bred, things have just "happened". In May , cellulitis: in June, a swollen eye ( not just a little swollen, 1 week of softball size swelling, which was nonresponsive to everything): in July she foundered badly with 14 degree rotation in 1 foot and 4 in the other.

    We have gotten her laminitis under control, as much as one can have it under control, Now, she has a vaginal discharge.

    This poor mare just can't seem to catch a break . Would appreciate some jingles for her or maybe some type of charm to ward off bad luck!

    Jingles Elizabeth!

    FWIW, a couple of years ago when my horse was ill and had a grim prognosis, a good friend gave me a healing stone (a small amethyst) and that very same day my horse took a dramatic turn for the better and never looked back. He made a 100% recovery. So he is sending you a virtual healing stone

    Jingles for your mare Didi. Maybe I should send La Donnarina over to give some her some moral support.

    What a terrible year, like her being pregnant isn't enough to make you worry.
    I hope the discharge turns out to be nothing serious.

    Jingles for your mare! Poor girl has had it rough.

    For what it's worth, I'm treating my mare now with antibiotics and she's due in about 3 weeks. She had a big leg yesterday morning after being out all day previous. No her leg wasn't swollen when she came in. Scrubbed it up and found a tiny nick. I don't like taking chances with these things and vet assured me things will be fine with the baby. I hate to do it, but I have to help her.

    Good Luck

    Default so sorry

    What about trying the stuff Edgar is selling here in the US, some folks swear by it. I have ordered some for a "mystery lameness" that the vets have thrown their hands in the air about......nothing else to loose. Some on here swear it is great in the repro area....Immunall. Do a search for Edgar and there is a link to his site.
    Good luck...that should be great baby.

    Oh my gosh Elizabeth...terrible. Have you ultrasounded to see if the uterine lining is thicker than usual? This can be an indication of placentitis which could explain the discharge. I've had a couple cases over the years with placentitis. One mare always got a discharge with it and she responded with a treatment of 1 week on 1 week off throughout pregnancy of SMZ tabs. The other mares didn't have discharge but all had a thickening and some with a speckled appearance to the lining of the placenta.

    If you need anything at all I am not far away...not much I guess I can do but am praying all goes well.
