I have a mare who foaled out almost 4 mos ago. Now we are getting ready to rebreed her AI. She has not been cultured since delivery. Recently changed vet, previous vet didn't mention it. Have not heard back from new vet yet. Is it routine to culture a mare before rebreeding if she had a normal delivery?

By four months post-foaling, the inflammatory cells normally present after foaling should be dissipated, so a culture and cytology may be of value if the mare has any questionable reproductive traits (e.g. poor reproductive conformation, repeat rebreed, etc).

There is none of that. She took on the first breeding last year, and this will be the first try this year. Talked to the new vet last night, and he will be out to palp on Monday. He seemed comfotable with her history, and did not mention culture or anything like that. If it is recommended, I will obviously do it. I just didn't know if it was a routine practice.
Thank you.

It's not generally routine in a post-foaling mare, but four months makes her a little outside the regular "post foaling" category, which is more usually used to describe the first 30 days or so post-foaling.

My personal inclination would be to check the cytology, which is easy and can return an almost immediate result (5 minutes), and only culture if there is a positive result.

Thanks Jos. I will mention that to the vet on Monday. It is great to have such a wonderful resource on the internet.
