We provide a full service for those wishing to breed from pre mating checks, getting your mare ready to conceive, pregnancy diagnosis and foaling assistance.
Prior to breeding we recommend a uterine swab is taken when your mare is in season to check the lining of the uterus is healthy and ready to carry a pregnancy. If signs of inflammation and infection are detected this can then be dealt with prior to breeding, increasing conception chances. It is also good practice to take a swab to check for transmittable bacterial infections such as Contagious Equine Metritis prior to service.
We also recommend an ultrasound scan of the reproductive tract to see what stage in the oestrus cycle your mare is at so planning for sending to stud can be made and also to check for any structural abnormalities such as cysts or any fluid accumulation within the uterus that could hinder a pregnancy.
