Cervical swabs and uterine biopsy for diagnosis of infertility in mares



Cervical swabs and uterine biopsy for diagnosis of infertility in mares



Wiener Tierarztliche Monatsschrift 66(1): 19-22



Cervical swabs and uterine biopsy samples were taken from 174 mares treated for sterility from 1975-1977. Bacteria (most frequently beta -haemolytic streptococci) were found in 104 cervical swabs (59%) and in 120 uterine biopsy samples (69%). In 50 mares (28.7%) both cervical swabs and biopsy samples were positive. These results show that both the uterus and the cervix should be checked for bacteria, especially when the gynaecological findings give grounds for suspicion.
