Hi Everyone! Just a quick question...a friend has told me that her vet says not to AI your mare directly after ultrasounding, as doing so can increase your chances of rupturing the rectal and/or uterine wall. I have never heard this before. We have always ultrasounded our mares/measured the dominant follicle and then cleaned them and prepared to AI right then. We've never had any problems before with this method...
My question is: Has anyone else heard this? Am I endangering my mare by AI'ing right after I ultrasound??
Thanks for looking!! Any advise or thoughts are appreciated!

If they are inseminating into the rectum, your friend should probably find another vet...

Think about this! With a horse, with standard AI (not deep horn), one places one's hand into the vagina and guides the pipette through the cervix. The rectum is not approached.

Ask your friend to ask the vets for a copy of the peer-reviewed research to back up their claim...

If that is truly what they claimed, I would run a mile before using them for breeding!!!

LOL -The vet definitely isn't inseminating into the rectum! I guess she's just saying that the pressure of AI'ing(vaginally) immediately after ultrasounding(rectally) can increase your chances of rupturing the rectal wall. She says having your arm in the rectum + the lubricant weakens the rectal wall and therefore you should wait at least two hours before you do any insemination. To tell you the truth really doesn't make much sense to me at all...but she is insistent!

The rectum doesn't communicate with the uterus! The vagina and the rectum share a common wall, but the concern over a rectal tear is an abdominal/rectal tear, and at that point the uterus is not attached to the rectum.

If this is a young vet they need to go back to school! If this is an older vet, they need reporting to the vet board!

Incompetence burns my ***!!!
