Ten mares aged from 8 to 10 years were experimentally infected with Streptococcus zooepidemicus to determine: if a series of uterine lavages promote bacterial elimination; if this elimination occurs before that caused by the mare's natural defences, and the number of lavages necessary per day to promote physical clearance. Half of the mares were given 5 lavages/day for 6 days and the remainder were not treated.
