I have a 8 yr mare that has had 1 foal 2 yrs ago. Sent her off to be bred she came back dirty very dirty. 4 differnt things growing in her. I heard about mannose and wanted to try it so thought i would see is anyone else had used it. we have flushed/infused her twice now. Any advice or help would be great.

I have never used it, I am a firm believer in treating mares post breeding with Settle. And they guarantee it!

The first important thing to consider is if the organisms you are encountering are actually pathogens or merely contaminants. Was there a cytology smear prepared in conjunction with a culture of the endometrial swab, and if so, did it support the findings as pathogens (i.e. were there inflammatory cells present)?

If there was a cytology smear that indicated a true pathogenic presence, what did the sensitivity evaluations show as to which antibiotics should be used to treat?

Mannose has been shown to give good success with treatment of b haemolytic Streptococcus such as Strep. equi sub. Zooepidemicus, and also fairly good results against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, but to treat an unidentified organism could be disastrous if it turned out there was a yeast (fungus) present!

Let us know the results of the diagnostic work on the mare, and perhaps we can point you in the right direction.

Settle (follow that link).

May be very beneficial in some instances, but in our opinion in some cases where it has been used there may be other alternative treatments or management methods that could be cheaper and/or at least equally effective or better.

My mare was carrying fluid, and had nuetrophils through the roof. We cultured four times with no growth (and tested for yeast and fungus).

We did two 5 day lavage series. Still had fluid and neutrophils after recovery period each time.

Finally did a mannose+antibiotic and two days of lavage after that--no more fluid, no more neutrophils.
