Complications in the early postpartum period are a common and challenging problem for the equine clinician and are a cause of considerable distress to owners. This article reviews some of the specific problems encountered in the postpartum mare. The ability to diagnose and successfully treat the conditions discussed assumes a detailed knowledge of the anatomy and features of a normal postpartum mare as well as competence in the necessary diagnostic procedures. A previous article in the July/August issue (In Practice, volume 34, pp 400 – 410) reviewed prepartum problems in mares.
