The Horse (Dec. 19) – Dr. Giorgia Podico describes a case involving an ovarian hematoma, and other ovarian problems that occur in mares.
“At her arrival we did another thorough work-up for colic,” Podico says. “The exam did not reveal anything abnormal in her gastrointestinal system. But a transrectal ultrasound revealed that her left ovary was the size of a cantaloupe. The freshly formed ovarian hematoma was considered responsible for her colic signs.”
