I recently had my mare cultured and a cytology done. The culture results came back positive for 2 colony types of klebsiella pneumoniae. The cytology report says: Few endometrial cells seen; Rare RBC's seen; No WBC's seen; Moderate debris;Moderate mucous. Jos in your article about cytology results it stated neutrophils must be seen. As stated above the cytology report does not mention neutrophils. Could someone please explain the cytology results to me? Thank you in advance..

Neutrophils are RBCs.

Klebsiella is a potentially sexually transmissible bacteria, so if the mare is being bred live cover, as a stallion owner, I would want more information.

It might not hurt to contemplate a low volume lavage with evaluation of the captured exudate (i.e. look for RBC content as well as pathogenic content).

Neutrophils are WBCs. :-)

Absolutely correct...! Trying to do too much on different continents... Sorry!!

Good job someone was paying attention!!!!

RBCs are red blood cells. WBCs, which include neutrophils and a variety of other inflammatory cells are White Blood Cells.

I'm going to go and lash myself with 50 lashes now and write lines to the effect that I need to read questions more carefully and not just pen answers so quickly...

After that I'm going to sleep.

Thank you for the replies. The mare was treated every other day totaling 3 treatments. She was re-cultured and a cytology done and they said she was clean, ready to breed. She will not be bred live cover.
