I just got the results back from my 12 yo Shire mare's biopsy - 2b. Not good. She had been solely a broodmare and an easy breeder until I purchased her this spring (stupid - didn't have a biopsy done before purchasing her, went on her history). She came open due to a late foal in 2003. We tried breeding her 3 times this year - twice live cover and once AI (on a double ovulation with great timeing, followed by oxytocin and antibiotic infusions).

The details of her biopsy score are:
- severe endometrial gland atrophy
- signs of chronic inflamation
- NO fibrosis or scarring noted
- NO signs of infection, though culture showed a low grade Strep. zooepidemicus infection a week earlier.


For the endometrial gland atropy - can anyone point me to info on it? It seems as thought it should be linked to fibrosis - incorrect? Is there anything that can be done to improve or deal with it?

I cannot get any more collections from the stallion this year. Live cover might be an option once I make sure she's clean. Good/bad idea?

I know it's not good to leave problem mares open - should I try very hard to get her pregnant this year via live cover or would 2 years open not be a huge risk - try again next spring?

I'm thinking of having a culture & cytology done just to make sure she actually has a low grade infection rather than just treating but I'm not sure where to go from there. My vet is great but she is not a repro specialist - I'm just trying to do my part to be informed. We work well together :-)

TIA

Oh please, please, please if you know more about this glandular atrophy bit, let me in on it too!

It's eerie to read someone so accurately decribing my situation in their own mare :-)
