I have the opportunity to work with a mare that had some conception trouble last year. She was bred three times with no pregnancy found at 14 days. Vet who did the breedings says timing looked good and she cycled "normally". I cannot be sure if she actually went back and checked for ovulation, as I know she often just breeds on a 45 plus and gives HCG.

The mare had a biopsy done and scored IIA. Vet who gave me results said IIA due to endometritis. No infection. She did not pool fluid. This is all the info I have available.

It's a lovely mare and I think there are enough unknowns here to make it worth trying her in a more vigorously monitored breeding program.

Would you think this mare is a good candidate for future breeding? If there is no infection, are there any treatments I could try?

Did the vet try Oxytocin treatments? It's cheap, and very effective. This site has a great Oxytocin Protocal to follow.

I have two IIA mares, I use Oxytocin on both, and lavage if needed. Both got in foal first try this year.

I am 99% sure they did not try oxytocin with her.
