A breeding soundness exam is recommended before breeding. This examination of your mare’s reproductive tract can improve reproductive success.
Reproductive ultrasound examination of internal reproductive tract can aid in identifying proper timing of breeding (artificial insemination or live cover), any abnormalities of the tract, to determine pregnancy and identify a twin pregnancy.
Post Breeding: Ultrasound examination
At day 14–15: Confirm pregnancy and identify twins
At day 30: Evaluate for a heartbeat
At day 45: Ensure normal development of the embryo
Uterine culture and sensitivity is utilized to diagnose infection and identify an effective antimicrobial (antibiotic) for treatment.
Uterine biopsy reveals histological defects in the uterine wall that may inhibit implantation of the embryo and a successful pregnancy.
Artificial insemination allows us to breed your mare with fresh-cooled semen.
A post foaling examination is recommended within the first 24–48 hours after foaling. This is vital to assess the health of the new foal and the dam.
