Reproductive Services for Mares
We offer a number of reproductive services for mares. Some of those include:
Breeding Management for Frozen or Cooled Semen
Embryo Transfer — On-site or shipped transfer, donor recovery, or superovulation
A prepartum mare needs several important vaccinations while pregnant, and also has particular nutritional needs. Contact us to get help developing a plan for a successful foaling.
Reproductive Services for Foals
We take care of the mare while the foal is still in the womb, and provide the necessary care for it once it is born as well. We recommend having a veterinarian examine your foal within the first 24 hours after birth, to ensure that:
It is receiving an adequate amount of colostrum
It’s received no trauma from the birthing process
It has no congenital defects that need attention
It is able to nurse
We also will help you develop a vaccination and health management plan for the foal as it ages. Ask us about our neonatal foal care as well.
Reproductive Services for Stallions
We also are able to provide reproductive services for stallions, including:
Breeding Soundness Evaluations — Similar to the evaluations we provide for mares, these evaluations involve a complete physical examination, external genitalia examination, semen collection and evaluation, fertility analysis, and much more. We perform thorough tests to get a full picture of your stallion’s breeding soundness.
Collection and shipment of cooled or frozen semen
Our stallion breeding services allow you to use your stallion’s semen how you choose: either fresh, cooled, or frozen. From choosing the right stallion to breed with your mare to the transfer of the semen, our equine veterinarians can help the whole equine reproduction process go fully to plan.
