Well she's not pregnant, she has a growth in her vaginal canall causing her to appear pregnant. Now that is the worst news I could of gotten today, from my understanding the vet says surgery is 2k and if it's cancer only a 10% survival rate, I'm heart broken and am in tears, I am trying to proccess this.

Oh my gosh, hon, that isn't what anyone would ever want to hear. Do you have other options? Is there a veterinary school near you that will work with you? (I know in my area, Purdue Vet School will sometimes take on unusual cases for teaching purposes pro bono, to use for teaching, and it's the best med care in the state you can get for you horse).

Keeping my fingers crossed for you and your girl that you find a solution! Best wishes, that's really hard news and certainly a big shock to deal with. *hugs* to you.

Get a second opinion as soon as possible, hopefully with a reproduction vet.(unless this vet is a repro vet) With a diagnosis as dire as this one, get a second opinion before you lose all hope

She's contacting a surgen who deals with reproduction issues, to see if he would give a second opinion and advice on what to do. I just spoke to her former owner, there was a syst in her overies when he checked her in foal year before last, and then did another check 30 days later it was still there but hadn't grown so told her not to worry about it. He never felt anything when palpating her tho. This is all scary to me, after loosing my arab stallion on Thanksgiving and our Anniversary a few years ago I never thought I would bond with another horse but Benny proved me wrong. I don't know what I'm gonna do if I loose that mare, I will be selling my yearling filly to help pay for surgery if need be so if you know anyone looking for a Khemo bred arabian filly let me know.

Wow so sorry to hear that .........I was actually expecting that you would tell us she was that would have been my guess.

Hoping your second opinion brings you better news.
