Infertility Investigation
Infertility Investigation
When poor pregnancy rates become apparent, it serves as a crucial indicator that your stallion’s fertility may be sub-optimal, necessitating a thorough investigation to identify and address potential challenges. The causes of diminished fertility in stallions can be diverse and complex, requiring a comprehensive approach to diagnostics.
Our diagnostic journey begins with a meticulous assessment of both internal and external reproductive organs of the stallion. This involves a thorough examination to identify any anatomical abnormalities, functional issues, or signs of reproductive disorders that may be hindering fertility. Understanding the physical condition of the stallion is paramount in shaping an effective intervention strategy.

Following the physical assessment, we proceed with a detailed semen analysis. Semen assessment is a critical component of understanding the reproductive health of the stallion, providing insights into sperm quality, quantity, and overall fertility potential. This analysis allows us to pinpoint specific areas of concern, such as sperm morphology, motility, and concentration, guiding us toward targeted solutions.

The potential causes of sub-optimal fertility in stallions can range from anatomical issues to sperm-related challenges or even systemic health concerns. Our commitment is to unravel this complexity through a step-by-step investigation, providing horse owners with a clear understanding of the factors influencing their stallion’s fertility.

By combining advanced diagnostics with a wealth of equine reproductive expertise, our veterinary team works collaboratively with stallion owners to formulate tailored intervention plans. Whether the solution involves medical treatment, management adjustments, or specialized reproductive techniques, our goal is to optimize the fertility potential of your stallion and contribute to a successful and thriving breeding program.

Emergency veterinary attention for your horse may be required at any time of the day or night. We provide veterinary care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to registered clients.
