Well We had to euthanize my little mare this morning. After being so excited and releived last night about the afterbirth finially coming out i got up to call the vet this morning to find out what time he wanted her there and found that she was in distress. Hypothermic and couldn't get up when i found her..then she completely gave up.

I am so sorry to hear you lost your mare. But I agree with one of the posts, you need to get another vet. No way should he have alowed that placenta to stay inside the mare so long. Sounds like she went into toxic shock which is one of the things a retained placenta can do.

My heart goes out to you.

I am so sorry to hear that you lost your mare. We had a mare retain her placenta and called vets for hours. Actually we called every vet in the book. No one would come out because every vet in the Reno/Carson area was at the Reno Rodeo which was less than 5 miles from my house. I talked to plenty of vets but none said they would come out. Finally a vet, not knowing how experienced I was told me how to remove the placenta. His only words of concern was be very careful because you can kill her. Our mare is fine but we could have had the same outcome as you did. I am so very sorry you lost her.
