The EquiKit™ "EquiFoalingKit™" Delivery Kit for Mare and Foal
Contains 41 carefully chosen items. You will find that the EquiKit™ "EquiFoalingKit™" goes well beyond what is found in many other horse foaling kits.
Includes Doc Alaire's own Organic Herbal Healing Salve,
brochures on foaling by the American Association of Equine Practitioners,
and Doc Alaire's booklet on "Foaling Guidelines".

Key info for our Foal Babies:
The Orange Fleet Enema which I have included in the EquiFoalingKit™ - Unlike nearly every foal kit I have seen on the internet and in equine catalogs, I ONLY recommend a MINERAL OIL-based enema for newborns, NOT water/saline!! Why? Because a saline-based enema is harsher and works by drawing water out of the gut to cause evacuation. This upsets the hydration balance of our newborns who are less than one day old (they are pretty fragile at this point in their little lives!). A MINERAL OIL-based enema is gentle and causes NO harm, and 'gets the job done' without effecting 'things' systemically. A MINERAL OIL-based enema as found in the EquiFoalingKit™, will NOT interfere with hydration of our babies.
Frankly, the saline-based enema products are generally less costly for the Seller!

Key info for our Mares:
Just a reminder - to contact your veterinarian if your mare demonstrates vaginal discharge and/or premature udder development or begins leaking milk well before her due date, as these can be warning signs of placental disease and a possible compromised pregnancy.
