Has anyone ever had a mare that had air in her uterus that you couldn't clear out? I have a mare who's 7 this year who has this problem. She was bred last year (as a maiden), confirmed in foal at day 14 and again at day 35, then later lost the fetus sometime after that. Vet did an ultrasound and palpation and said her uterus had a big bubble of air in it. The mare has excellent confirmation, but just in the chance that she was windsucking, the vet put in a caslicks. This was back in November. My mare was just rechecked again yesterday to see if the air was still there and the vet said it was, but only about half the amount that was there before. I'm not sure why the mare aborted last year, but the vet is thinking because of the air. Also did culture and biopsy prior to caslicks. Culture came back negative and biopsy grade II with mucous in the uterus. Anyone dealt with anything like this before?

Prevention of the pneumouterus should have been aided greatly by the Caslick's procedure, especially if she did not have poor conformation to start with. The poor biopsy score and presence of the mucous has me wondering if you are in fact not dealing necessarily with pneumouterus, but rather a yeast infection. It might be worth performing a uterine swab and evaluating for the presence of yeast either by cytology smear or by growing a culture specifically intended to identify yeast (bacterial cultures may not grow yeast).

Thanks Jos, at this point I'm open to trying anything! I'm also trying to get a second opinion from another vet, so it'll be interesting to see what we come up with.

I,m not sure that the mare has realy good conformation because the main problem in windsucking mare is their vulvovaginal position more upward to the dorsal pelvis axis;so eventhough it seems to you meritorious to try anything to obtaine a good healthy foal the chances are very small.Better to renounce.Dr.Majid IZADI

Mare does have good confirmation. Several vets have agreed on this and the windsucking is kind of a mystery. However, mare is currently in foal, with caslicks and on regumate, around day 80 with no problems. I can only hope all continues to go well.
