RVC team publish work on oestrus suppression in the mare
Dr Madeleine Campbell, Dr Mandi de Mestre, Professor Ken Smith, Daniel Hampshire, Dr Belinda Rose and Lauren Hamstead have recently published the results of their HBLB funded work on the development of a welfare-friendly, ethical method of oestrus suppression for mares. Their findings have relevance to clinicians as they suggest that intrauterine infusion of peanut oil, contrary to a previous report, is not a reliable method of oestrus suppression in all mares. Furthermore, the treatment causes at least a short term insult to endometrial health. The paper can be viewed in open access for a short time at https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1VSU-,28LgwA6V
