I have a mare that I'm getting ready to breed this spring that has (had hopefully) E-Coli. (She had a cytology and uterian smear) She was flushed three times in three days with Gentamycin (which is what the lab said it was sensitive to). I noticed 3 days later that she had a white pus like discharge. I called my vet and he said this is normal with the amount of antibiotics he used.

In another week and a half we are going to take another culture to make sure she's clean before we breed her in May.

I would appreciate very much if someone could explain to me why this would happen. I would think if he flushed her with Gentamycin it would have been flushed out at that time and not come out later on.

Thanks, Marilyn

Jos or anyone else for that matter. Can you help me with my situation? I'm quite perplexed.

Thank you! Marilyn

There are probably two possibilities:
  1. You are seeing a normal clearance of inflammatory response to the uterine treatment;
  2. The Gentamycin was not correctly buffered, and caused excessive inflammatory response. Gentamycin is highly irritating to the uterus as it is not the same pH, and needs to be buffered with something like sodium bicarbonate. Sometimes this is not done correctly, and it results in a major reaction and can also cause scalding of the sensitive tissue of the uterine/vaginal/vulval region.

Yikes, I hope it's not the second possiblity. I really really appreciate you responding to my question Jos, you are such a dear heart to help us out like you do.

God bless you, Marilyn
