Tuesday Tidbits
@burwashequineservices

The umbilical cord that connects foal to mare usually ruptures when the mare stands up post foaling. The umbilicus that remains may seem like a small deal (it’s just a belly button!), but, it’s actually a very common route for bacterial infection. To help prevent ascending infections of the umbilical cord, mares should foal-out in clean and dry locations, foals should receive adequate colostrum, and umbilical dips should be performed right at birth and then 2-3 times a day for the first 2-3 days of life. An easy way to do this is to fill a 50mL conical tube with a 1:1 dilution of 2% chlorhexidine and completely immerse the umbilical stump. Monitoring for umbilical infection is key! A foal’s umbilicus should be small, dry and cool to the touch.
