Mare was diagnosed with two types of Candida. I ordered lufenuron, my question is would you use it at the beginning of the heat and breed in the same cycle or would you wait for the next cycle with breeding?
Also I have a question about anti-mycotic drugs used in humane medicine (e.g. clotrimazol). We probably wont be able to get it in the solution form. I found the vaginal ovules though. Would you consider using it intrauterine or not?
I would want to ensure that the yeast was cleared before breeding, so a subsequent culture will be needed after treatment (it can be difficult to dislodge), so by the time that you get the results of that culture back, it will probably be too late to breed on that cycle.
Clotrimazole can be used. It typically takes about 3 times the human dose for a single equine dose, and treatment should be daily for 5-7 days.
With both modes of treatment, make sure that you lavage not only the uterus, but also the vagina and clitoral fossa. You want to clear the yeast completely, and leaving any in the reproductive tract is likely to result in reinfection.
Look forward to seeing you there! The information will be going up on the courses page within next week!
