Horse Endometritis can be fungal or bacterial. The most common fungi in fungal endometritis in horses include the Candida (yeast) and Aspergillus (mold).
Mares are particularly susceptible when their immune systems have been weakened following antibiotic use.
Bacterial Endometritis is a common cause of infertility particularly in older mares that have foaled previously. Acute infectious endometritis may be the result of several factors including impairment of the normal uterine defence systems and degenerative fibrosis. Scarring of the uterine lining results in infertility and inflammation caused by urine pooling (retained urine) may also prevent conception.
Horse Endometritis may result directly from a covering with a stallion (particularly in maiden mares and those that have recently foaled); this is termed Breeding Induced Endometritis.
Can Niagara Equissage help with Horse Endometritis?
Niagara Equissage actively promotes one the activities of the lymphatic system – that of being the body’s defense mechanism.
A significant proportion of the lymph is made up of lymphocytes and macrophages which are, in essence, the immune system. So an active, healthy lymphatic system works relentlessly to combat any invasions from alien organisms. By working in harmony with the immune system and at the same time promoting circulation, the structures and cells of the body are continually supplied with nutrient rich blood to restore and replenish, thus helping to fight the infection. As an infection it is vital that resultant waste products are eliminated as rapidly as possible, therefore acting as a good form of Horse Endometritis treatment.
Use the Back Pad on a medium setting for 20 minutes each day until the infection has cleared. Thereafter routine use of Niagara Equissage will help promote the immune system.
- The pony was qualified for the Horse of The Year Show in England, but was ill with a virus 10 days before the show and the vet advised not traveling. 50 ml/day of Brandes Formula and a week later the bloods were dramatically improved and the decision made to travel, albeit later than intended. The pony had to be ridden by an English rider for qualification reasons, and Christie Prichard had not sat on him till 20 minutes before the class. They jumped one of only 5 clear rounds, and then won the Jump Off to be crowned Pony Of The Year. Without Brandes Formula we would not even have been at the show. As it turned out he looked great, jumped superbly, and thanks to Brandes Formula our dream has come true.

"My Niagara Equissage is in use 4 hours every morning treating many horses for many things, including ALL horses racing that day. I find using the Niagara Equissage on tendons and suspensors removes soreness totally."
- "I like the way the Niagara Equissage relaxes the horses. It helps with sore muscles and the horses recuperation after hard races. I can see a difference."
