NDappy I have mares that are bred for very good valuable foals. These 3 mares are the future of my breeding program. Those foals need to be sound and alive when foaled. One of these mares will be 18 when she foals and I paid a very good sum for her last year. I want to get at least 4 foals out of this mare. Losing one foal will not hurt me financially but in terms of replacing and recovering the cost of this mare it will hurt my program especially if she is hard to get back in foal next year.
I am responsible for the welfare of these horses and I take this very seriously.
I am not being an alarmist but I will be informed and make my decision
accordingly.
Asking question is not blaming anyone it is simply being informed. Shalom

West Nile Virus vaccine could certainly be taken out of one's regimen if there were problems with it unless you are in a high risk area. If equine rhinopneumonitis were causing abortions, then it would be a necessary vaccine. Vaccine protocols will differ for different situations. For example, horses that are totally isolated may not need much beyond tetanus and eastern equine encephalitis (or which ever one is common in their area.) I would think that your veterinarian will be able to determine whether rhinopneumonitis caused your problem, and if it did, recommend the best course of action in the future.

I like to give tetanus vaccine in the last month of pregnancy because it can protect both the mare and the foal.

The fetus' were both negative on the gross necropsy and negative for both lepto and rhino. No bacterial infections nothing. Vet is chalking it up to REALLY bad luck

I absolutely will not give WNV for this reason. I had investigated studies when it first became popular and with my medical background, the reports sent up too many flares. Vaccines are money makers for these companies. Pneoumabort is another with too many dead foals associated with it.
I am so sorry about your mares GWA. It does sound like some kind of exposure, whether internal or external. I can't guess what, but I hope they find it. The vulvular swelling is a very disturbing sign- reflecting a toxin of some sort. Wish I knew...
So sad..

Ghostwind, sorry that you could not get any answers about why the mares aborted. Now you have no way of preventing future problems. Goodluck. Shalom
