I have a friend (using that term loosely) that has a 21 yo mare with a uterine infection. According to them, the vet said it's only a problem if the mare is going to be bred again.
I have an opportunity to acquire this mare and I know NOTHING of mares as I've only owned geldings. To me it doesn't sound right. Wouldn't the infection eventually need to be treated even though the mare would never be bred again (by me)???
The vet said that it just needs flushed, but the owner has not done it.
What are your thoughts???
