Abstract

Summary: A 6-year-old Warmblood stallion was admitted for semen collection and cryopreservation. On the seventh and subsequent collection days semen samples were contaminated with purulent debris. A diagnosis of seminal vesiculitis was made following ultrasonography and endoscopy of the seminal vesicles. The stallion was treated with systemic and topical antimicrobial therapy and, although this did not cure the condition, subsequent ejaculates were suitable for cryopreservation. © 2009 EVJ Ltd.
