Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

If the afterbirth remained inside the uterus for a week, this will certainly cause a severe uterine infection that will need to be treated. If left untreated, this can cause permanent damage to the uterus leaving this cow infertile. Most often, your vet will flush out the uterus with betadine and place this cow on systemic antibiotics to be sure that the uterus will remain healthy.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
