Breeding Evaluation

Our Equine Veterinarians have particular experience in equine reproduction and stud medicine. We provide veterinary services to local Standardbred horses, Pleasure and Sports horses and Thoroughbred stud farms. This includes routine gynecological and pregnancy examinations, management of fertility problems, treatment of mares and foals and dealing with obstetric and neonatal emergencies.

Before breeding from your mare, a full reproductive examination should be performed which will allow the Veterinarian to assess her suitability for breeding and highlight any potential reproductive problems. If your mare is going to stud or insemination is to be performed, the veterinary surgeon will be able to advise you on and perform any tests required before your mare goes.
