Question Yellow discharge from mare

Not sure if this should go here or in Health, if it is not in the right spot , please move it. My new mare has a yellow , thick discharge coming from her vulva. She is just coming out of heat. Not sure if it is from the uterus or bladder. I just noticed it today. Is this something that is normal for older mares? She is 18. Should I call the Vet tomarrow?

I would definitely have the vet out tomorrow. If her anus is recessed, it's possible she's contaminated and infected. A good lavage and subsequent round of antibiotics could be in order, as well as sewing her down as a preventative. The vet will determine by culture what the discharge is.

I never minded a little red discharge after my mares were in season, but I don't like yellow discharges anywhere on a horse. It's likely nothing, but if it were me I would invest a visit to the vet or a vet call just to be on the safe side. A yellow discharge anywhere can be a sign of infection, and horses' three biggest enemies are worms, colic, and infection...

Well my daughter just phoned from the barn. Her and the BO checked over the mare and they saw no discharge. But they did notice that one of the other mares was keeping her away from the water. Maybe she was becoming dehydrated? I am gonna see how she is in the morning. It worries me.

No, not drinking will not cause a yellow discharge.
If she had it, she still does, just has not passed any for them to see.
I agree, a Vet visit is in order. You dont want to take a wait and see and as Divine said, she may need to casslicked.
