Faculty and resident veterinarians in our Equine Reproduction Service provide routine and advanced reproductive care to patients at the VMTH.

Services provided for mares include diagnostic work-ups on infertile mares, artificial insemination, ultrasonographic pregnancy diagnosis, twin reduction, pregnant mare care, obstetrics, and foaling management. In addition, our clinicians manage mares experiencing dystocia (difficult foaling), working in close collaboration with veterinarians specializing in surgery, neonatology, critical patient care and anesthesia.

Services provided for stallions include fertility evaluation, investigation of infertility, stallion breeding management, semen collection and evaluation, preparation and shipment of cooled semen, and freezing of semen. Also available are advanced reproductive technologies, including transvaginal aspiration of oocytes, ICSI, embryo transfer and collection and freezing of epididymal sperm.
