Abstract

Historically, twin pregnancy has been one of the leading causes of pregnancy loss in the mare. Numerous studies have identified factors that increase the incidence of twinning. The identification and management of twins during the mobility phase remains the most effective method to control the potentially detrimental effects of twin pregnancy. Options exist for post fixation management of twins, although these methods are generally less successful than management during the mobility phase.
