When lavaging a mare after breeding, and the cervix is still quite open, how do you prevent the solution from flowing out into the pelvic floor in front of the cervix? Or does this matter? I am inserting the tubing into the uterus through the cervix and the 1st bottle goes well and beyond that - it seems to flow into and then out of the uterus and I am siphoning it back out of the front of the cervix - not from the uterus.

If you are using a stomach tube (or some other form pf pipe) with a funnel, gravity will tend to drop the fluid to the lowest point in the uterus, so although some will end up being displaced into the vaginal vault, the majority should find it's way into the uterus.

It is better to use a Foley catheter though rather than a straight pipe, which will allow for inflation of the cuff, thereby preventing loss into the vaginal vault. With post-foaling mares, a Foley is probably not going to work as the cervix will still be too distended.

I have been using an emema bag with attached tubing (which is what my vet uses). What do you recommend as a bag to attach the Foley catheter to? I am not familiar with the workings of the Foley catheter - but am open to suggestions on what is going to work best. Thanks so much

You can use Y or straight tubing and attach the bag of saline or LRS (or whatever you are using) right to the end of the tubing. It comes with an attachment for an IV bag.
