Uterine Infection and Inflammation in Mares
Though frequently misdiagnosed by culture alone, uterine infection, known as infectious endometritis, is the most common reason for infertility in horses. It may also be one of the most over diagnosed conditions in breeding horses. Culture alone is not a reliable indication of a problem with the uterus. Quicker, more reliable, simpler, and even cheaper techniques have been found for diagnosing this condition. Recently a more difficult to identify problem of a persistent or recurring post breeding infectious endometritis has been identified as a cause of chronic infertility. This article discusses the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis for acute uterine infection, persistent post-breeding infection, and chronic conditions like uterine cysts and fibrosis.
