For mares that require more intensive work or are higher-risk we have the support of Rainbow Equine Reproductive Services at the hospital where we can offer state-of-the-art reproductive work with the benefit of 24/7 veterinary attendance and on-site laboratory.
Most castrations will be performed at home under sedation. Castration of older stallions is safer if performed under general anaesthesia so that the larger blood vessels can be tied off. These procedures are generally performed in the hospital where general anaesthesia is safer and the risk of infection can be reduced.
Our road vets are fully equipped to undertake routine breeding work on your yard:
- Pre-breeding mare examination
- Pre-breeding stallion checks
- Mare scans
- Artificial insemination
- Post-foaling checks
