Last trimester of pregnancy and labour

Friday 02 February 2024

LAST TRIMESTER OF PREGNANCY


Advanced gestation corresponds to the last trimester and goes from 7 months to birth, where the growth of the foal is exponentially increased from 20% to 100%. The mother's energy needs increase by 15%, but protein and mineral requirements increase the most. This is a concept that must be very clear since the mare should not be overfed in terms of energy by giving more rations of hay or grain, but alternatives capable of balancing the mineral and protein contents must be sought.
 

Other minerals such as iron, zinc, copper or manganese are also important at this stage of gestation since the foal is capable of storing them for use in the first months of life. They also help prevent development problems.
 


BASIC
Vitamins, aminoacids an minerals

Contains all essential vital substances that are highly bioavailable and have rapid assimilation.
In broodmares:

Promotes the formation of the foal's bones
Improves the quality and quantity of colostrum
Increases milk production
Improves the overall condition of the mare at the time of labour
In pellets!


LABOUR

After giving birth, especially if there have been any complications or the mare feels a bit weak, it is recommended to administer a restorative tonic:
 

HAEMATINIC
Restorative tonic

Recommended in cases of weakness, fatigue, and recovery periods.
Contains highly active ingredients to energize the mare and improve her general condition.


Iron
Copper
Zinc
Vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12
Folic acid


Abortion, twinning, induction of labor, caesarean section, dystocia, placentitis and uterine atony can increase the risk of a retained placenta. The contribution of selenium helps to avoid it.

E VITAMIN, SELENIUM & LYSINE
The contribution of selenium helps to avoid retained placenta

Indicated for all mares that have suffered retained placenta in the last labor.
E vitamin increases fertility and conception in mares.
 

LACTATION

During the first 3 months after giving birth, the mare has to produce 11,5L of milk a day. In the first months of lactation, we will have maximum energy and protein needs.
 


TRIAMIN
With lysine, methionine, cysteine and calcium
Increases production and improves the quality of milk in mares.
 
During the first months of life, foals are fed every one or two hours. While some may begin to nibble on solid food within a couple of days after birth, the mare's milk should be the foal's only dietary need, at least until about two months of age.

Mares with low quantity or quantity of milk
Orphan foals
Mother's rejection
