It might, although I am not aware of it's being used in the equine - primarily because you want that post-breeding inflammatory response, and without it the mare will typically become infected as a result of pathogenic presence introduced during the breeding procedure and estrus while the cervix is relaxed!
Use of ecbolics post-breeding to assist in delayed uterine clearance if it an issue is the normal mode of treatment of post-breeding uterine issues.
Well I was just thinking. If she's going to get a lavage with antibiotics anyway...
She mounts a mighty inflammatory response after AI. I have my suspicions that the inflammatory response isn't tapering off as it should. I am concerned that she is being put on Regumate before the response is tapered off, and that is the fluid that isn't clearing.
I was just thinking that maybe I could time it with the breeding, give a course of MicroLactin before the breeding. Or in her case a better plan might be to time it for 2-3 days after breeding to help stop the inflammation response once it's done it's job.
Oh well, I'm sure my vet will give me the 'nutty owner' look and go on with her business. I'm a molecular geneticist by trade, what do they say--a little knowledge is dangerous?? Danger, danger!
Thanks for letting me bounce an idea off of you!
