Successful AI requires meticulous planning and preparation, accurate timing and careful monitoring. Decisions such as the choice of mare and stallion and the presentation type of the semen (fresh, chilled or frozen) are crucial in improving the chances of your mare becoming pregnant.
We can help in all these areas, providing advice and taking cervical swabs to test for infectious diseases prior to the process, scanning and other tests to help predict the timing of your mare's ovulation, as well as the insemination process itself.
Mares can board with us at the clinic where we can provide a fixed cost for the whole procedure.
For more information about Artificial Insemination please read our information sheet which explains the process, answers questions you may have and explains how you can best prepare your mare and what we can do to help.More Information
The source of a horse's lameness may be in the leg or hoof but could also originate elsewhere, such as in the back or neck, so a full investigation (or "work-up") is usually required to identify the problem area.We offer full lameness work-ups at our clinic to pinpoint problems and provide targeted treatment, with subtle lameness cases being one of our specialities.
For those who would prefer not to have a full investigation we can provide practical advice and logical answers.
For more information please see our client information sheet covering lameness investigationsMore Information
Whilst some horses have a primary back problem it is much more common for back pain to be secondary to other problems so it is very important that a full and thorough examination of the whole horse is carried out to establish whether any soreness is originating solely from the back or due to other underlying causes.
We regularly investigate back problem and/or poor performance cases. The clinic itself has ideal facilities for a full investigation, but a preliminary examination can easily be performed at your stable.
