Hysteroscopic Treatment of the Oviducts (Fallopian Tubes):
In our commitment to comprehensive equine reproductive care, we employ advanced techniques such as hysteroscopic (video-endoscopy of the uterus) treatment to address infertility issues that may arise from blocked oviducts in mares. These delicate ducts, connecting the ovaries to the uterus, are crucial for the successful journey of ova and early embryos. When blockages occur, hindering this intricate pathway, it can lead to challenges in conception.

Prostaglandin Application:

This naturally occurring hormone is applied during the hysteroscopic procedure to induce controlled contractions within the oviducts. These contractions act as a therapeutic mechanism, effectively ‘unblocking’ the delicate tubes, restoring the natural flow and function of the reproductive pathways.

Precision and Expertise:

Our hysteroscopic treatment approach is characterised by precision and expertise, ensuring minimal invasiveness while maximising therapeutic benefits. This technique not only addresses current blockages but also contributes to the overall enhancement of the mare’s reproductive health, paving the way for increased fertility and successful breeding outcomes.

Reproductive Solutions:

Understanding that each mare is unique, our equine veterinary team customises treatment plans based on the specific diagnostic findings. Whether as part of a comprehensive fertility evaluation or a targeted intervention, hysteroscopic treatment stands as a testament to our commitment to offering advanced solutions to enhance your mare’s reproductive potential.

If you suspect infertility issues or are exploring ways to optimise your mare’s reproductive health, consider our hysteroscopic treatment as a key component of our comprehensive equine reproductive services.

Hysteroscopic treatment of the Oviduct (Fallopian tube)

Due to the very rare survival of twin pregnancies to term it is recommended to reduce one of the embryos to result in a single remaining pregnancy.

Twin reduction

In equine veterinary medicine, the ability to determine fetal gender is a valuable aspect of reproductive care, aiding breeders in their strategic breeding programs.
