Acute and transient post breeding inflammation of the uterus is a normal event in the mare. Maybe second to poor timing of mating, persistent endometritis is the next most common cause of infertility. Persistent endometritis can have a number of causes and requires a correct diagnosis and targeted treatment to overcome the problem. Uterine infection is a common reason for persisted endometritis and infertility in horses but culture alone is not a reliable indication of this problem. Quicker, more reliable, simpler, and even cheaper techniques have been found for diagnosing this condition. persisted post breeding endometritis has been identified as a cause of chronic infertility. Though there may be an infectious component the primary problem is one with the uterus's normal function. This article discusses the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis for acute uterine infection, persistent post-breeding infection, and chronic conditions like uterine cysts and fibrosis.
