I bred the mare at 6am Sunday and lavaged her 7 hrs later and it didn't look too bad. I have been giving her oxytocin every 6 or so hrs. I lavaged her again Monday evening and while it is clear (not cloudy) there are floaty bits in the recovered saline solution. I used 3 liters in total. How many more times can I do this to try and clear things up? From your article on oxytocin - it mentions up to 3.5 days post ovulation for oxytocin. Does that timing go with lavaging as well?
Thank you for your help

Lavaging will often cause an inflammatory response of it's own, so I prefer not to lavage unless essential. If there is £1 cm of fluid present in the uterus, oxytocin will typically take care of that. An exception may be if there is a known pathogen problem, in which case lavage with antibiotic may be of use.

When lavaging where there is a cloudy exudate, it is good to continue to put in fluid and drain it until what is coming out is as clear as what is going in.

Because the lavage will tend to irritate the uterus, I prefer not to lavage any later than 2 days post-ovulation. That leaves a little time for left over fluid to clear before the cervix closes on day 3, and also for the uterus to become less irritated and a less hostile environment for the embryo to descend into a few days later.
