Moderate to severe cases of equine dystocia have traditionally been resolved through referral to tertiary care centers or have resulted in euthanasia of the mare. A paradigm for decision making regarding the ability to resolve the dystocia in a field setting will first be presented, followed by a protocol for the economical resolution of such dystocias. Initial stabilization and supportive care of the mare will be reviewed, followed by a systematic approach to fetal mutation and fetotomy. Suggestions for routine post-resolution care as well as a list of the most common complications will be offered. (1 CE credit)
