At the end of last breeding season, my mare was cultured before the fall transition to make sure she was clean going into anestrus for the winter. My vet fractured the culture tip off inside my mares uterus. My mare had two rounds of high volume lavage with oxytocin follow up (plus she was nursing a foal at the time). The tip was never visibly recovered. My vet was never able to scan the tip in utero with 100% confidence. Is there any chance she expelled the culture tip on her own? Has anyone else ever had this happen to them? What's next? The mare has been recultured this spring and is clean and ready to go. Should I try to have here scoped before I go forward and try to inseminate her on her next cycle?
Thanks

While it is possible that the mare expelled the tip herself, it is also possible that it is either still in the uterus, or even worse that it has become encapsulated within the uterine wall. If either of the latter two situations are the case, it is likely to prevent establishment and/or maintenance of a pregnancy. As a consequence, careful ultrasound evaluation by a competent ultrasonographer with a good quality ultrasound machine would be recommended as an initial step, followed (if nothing definitive was determined) by use of an endoscopic evaluation of the uterus.
