The aim of this study is to find the best method of treatment of endometritis in ewe. The study was conducted in goat station at Agurgof and other region in Baghdad from [2009][2010][2011][2012][2013] and was performed on 28 awassi ewes aged (2-4 years old) that diagnosed clinically as cases of endometritis . The animals were divided randomly into four groups each group consisting of 7 ewes. The first group was treated with oestradiol benzoate 1mg intramuscularly (IM) and 2gm of oxytetracycline

The third group was given oestradiol benzoate 1mg IM and 1 tube of cefapirin IU, while the fourth group was treated with 2gm oxytetracycline 20% IM and oesradiol benzoate 1mg IM. The results showed that the number of ewes responded were (57.14, 100, 85.71 and 42.85) % respectively. The second and third groups showed the significant differences rather than first and fourth groups regarding to open days length. From these results, we concluded that oesradiol benzoate has vital role in the treatment of endometritis and its synergetic effect with lugol ' s iodine solution gives the best result.
