Customer Question
We received 2 rescue...

We received 2 rescue mares last night. They are both pregnant. One is a PMU mare, and today we see she has started to bag up on one side. They road about 14 hours straight thru to get to us. We are concerned for her. She's off her feed. But drinking water.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. We need to be extra careful with pregnancies, so we'll need to connect you with the Veterinarian ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the horse?

Just wondering what you all think. We see movement from the fetus. She is about 6 months along from what they palpated
