Stud Medicine

If you are hoping to breed from your mare, our vets at Bourton Vale Equine Clinic can work with you every step of the way, from optimising the chances of a successful covering or insemination to advice on foaling and caring for the new addition.

Once you have decided on a suitable stallion and the method of covering, one of our vets can come to you to take the initial swabs and blood tests usually required before a mare goes to the stud (if a natural service), and also to scan her to ascertain when the optimal time for her to be bred will be.  Our vets can continue to care for the mare post covering with pregnancy diagnoses, advice on vaccinations and foaling and later on, newborn foal checks.

Our team of experienced stud vets care for the boarding mares at some of the most prestigious studs in the area and we offer stud packages for owners of these mares wishing to take advantage of an easier, inclusive payment option.
