Equine reproduction

We can scan your mare with our ultrasound scanner. This is useful to check her ovarian activity and give you a better idea of the best time to mate her, and after she has been mated, to check for signs of early pregnancy up to about 45 days post mating.

Blood tests are available to determine if your mare is pregnant. These tests are most accurate after 100 days post mating.

Get your foal checked within the first 24 hours of foaling, it is wise to have a Tetanus antitoxin administered at this stage. This visit is a good opportunity to check the mare over, particulalry her birthing canal, for any injuries sustained during foaling.
