    Default When to do a cytology on mare?

    I have an older mare (17) who had a uterine infection last year (treated), I am looking to breed her next month and am wondering when the best time to run a culture and cytology on her would be?

    My worry is that if I run it too soon and its clear she may get an infection just prior to breeding, however if I run it right before I breed her I risk having it come back positive and miss a breeding.

    I'm new to this, my first breeding mare.

    You can do it anytime she is in heat. Even if you culture on the same cycle that you intend breeding on, you can still treat and breed on the same cycle.
