if your mare has an infection before breeding, infusing or shots?
Is there a new technique that if a mare has a uterine infection, rather than infusing right into the mare, she is given shots instead. For example, given naxcell IM or IV (not sure which) instead of infusing this right into her.
I'm know in past, its always been done internally, i.e. infusing.
Please share your thoughts on this. It would be much appreciated.
If a culture showed a uterine infection she will have to be lavaged and treated (infused in her uterus) with an antibiotic that the culture is sensitive to in order to clear it up. A shot won't do it. It will have to be done several times over a period of a few days, so you will probably have to leave her at the clinic or have the vet out daily and reculture to be sure she's clean. Good luck!
