When you need us
Your stallion is on the market, and you’re looking for an
experienced veterinarian to handle his breeding
Whether your stallion is a novice breeder or an experienced stud, whether you’re breeding a limited number of mares locally or shipping semen across the country, we offer a full array of stallion services to make the semen collection and stallion management process as easy and hassle-free as possible.
What we do
We’ll take care of the full suite of stallion services, from collection to storing and shipping semen
Prior to breeding mares with your stallion, we’ll perform a breeding soundness examination to assess his potential fertility. This evaluation can include an assessment of his fresh semen, fresh-cooled semen, or frozen semen after thawing, depending on your intended breeding method. If you have a new or novice stallion, we’ll start by training him to the phantom to facilitate semen collection and evaluation.
If you have the need or desire to ship your stallion’s semen across the country, we’ll handle the details and collect, process, package and ship his semen to its destination, minimizing the work on your end. If your stallion is showing or
otherwise unavailable, or if you’re just preparing for the unthinkable, complete semen freezing services are also available.
For stallions with fertility issues, we can complete a full fertility work-up, utilizing the
latest diagnostic techniques, including a detailed ultrasound examination of the
reproductive tract and advanced laboratory testing.
