My vet is treating one of my mares for ecoli infection as evidenced by culture/cytology, and she has chosen to use betadine for two days, then infuse with pen on the 3rd day. I am planning on breeding her this same day (3rd) if she progresses as "planned."

I have read that betadine should not be left in the uterus due to the inflammatory response it evokes, and also that it should not be used immediately prior to breeding for the same reason. Is this correct? I have read conflicing information, and my vet does not seem to feel this is a problem, as she routinely flushes with betadine and does NOT follow it up with a saline flush afterwards.

As late as it is, this will probably be my only chance to breed this mare this year, so I dont want to do anything that is going to create a more hostile environment in the uterus.

Would appreciate any opinions/advice!

Thanks!
Charity

We would prefer not to leave Betadine in the uterus, and always follow up such a lavage (not an infusion) with oxytocin. There have been reports of luminal adhesions produced as a result of leaving iodine-based liquids in some sensitive mares (Dascanio JJ, Schweizer C, Ley WB. Equine Fungal Endometritis. (2001) Equine vet. Educ. 13(6):324-329).

Iodine-based solutions will invoke a fairly significant inflammatory response, and for that reason, our preference is to use it on the estrus before breeding rather than the same estrus. If it is used on the same cycle, it would definitely be early in the estrus, not right before breeding.
