Problem mares: Have you ever tried to breed from your mare and she appears normal but just doesn't get in foal? Ask your vet to refer the mare to us as a "problem mare" and we can manage her fertility for the season. Some of the problems we have encountered include blocked oviducts, uterine or cervical adhesions, uterine tumours, pregnancy loss, missing uterine horns and bizarre infections. In one case we have removed a marble from the uterus that had migrated through the uterine horn into the abdominal cavity! We offer the full suite of advanced reproductive services including ultrasound, laser, hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, cervical surgery and embryology procedures.
New laser treatments for uterine cysts! Over 70% of old mares have uterine cysts which can reduce pregnancy rates in mares. Laser removal of uterine cysts provides the mare with a clean slate to carry the pregnancy! After laser treatment in the USA, pregnancy was achieved in 72% of previously barren mares.
Supplements we recommend to support fertility

How do I know if my stallion is fertile? The gold standard of fertility is the ability to produce foals. So does your stallion have a per cycle pregnancy rate greater than 50%?
