Abstract:

Uterine infection is one of the main causes of equine infertility in thoroughbred mares. A timely diagnosis and an efficacious treatment in the breeding season would be essential for a successful breeding outcome. The current study was to identify the bacterial infection based on growth in culture media. In one season out of 107 mares, 45 mares (42%) were positive for culture and 62 mares (58%) were negative for any pathogens. A total of 216 cervical swabs were taken. Seventy sample (32%) were positive for culture and 146 (68%) were negative. In that 64 (91%) cultures were contained only single type of organism and 6 (9%) cultures were mixed colonies that had two types of organism. In our study, Escherichia coli was the major isolate followed by Staphylococcus spp. and Streptococcus spp. beta haemolytic group.
