SNAP test as routine - who does it?
Just curious what others do. Do you have a blood draw for snap (blood test for antibody levels) test 12 - 15 hours postpartum? Is it a matter of routine or only in specific circumstances such as maiden mares or foals showing signs that they might not be 100%? Does your vet examine each foal or not?
Just curious...some people think im going overboard but all of our foals have an antipartum visit and exam along with the snap test. Despite this we still lost a baby this year...booooo.
