Rx Equine is proud to offer a full line of reproductive services for your breeding program, regardless of size. With close relationship with equine veterinarians, we can bring complete services right to Rx Equine, using your veterinarian or our very close and talented clinic.
We have experience working with programs that use live cover, shipped cooled semen and frozen semen. Many of our clients choose frozen semen for its convenience. Modern advances in this technique make it more accessible to those who were intimidated by the historically intensive nature of working with frozen semen. We can help you make the decision for what is right for you, your mare and your budget.
For those clients who would like a foal from a mare who is competing, embryo transfer may be an option to consider. We have plenty of experience in this area and are happy to be of full service to you.
Pregnant Mare Care
We can customize a program to help ensure your mare gets all the care she needs during her pregnancy. This includes appropriate vaccines and deworming, as well as feeding recommendations and safe pasture management. And like all of our services, we can customize the program to your budgetary needs.
We are available 24 hours a day to help with any foaling emergency or to provide assurance that all is well when the time comes for your mare to have her foal. Many clients opt to foal out their mares on their own farms and we are glad to provide all the support they need. If you are happier to have someone else spend sleepless nights watching and waiting, we can refer you to seasoned professionals to help your mare have a smooth delivery.
Rx Equine can also help you with stallion management. We offer collection services, including packaging for shipment and consultation for breeding shed set up and management.
Once your new prize is on the ground, we can make sure it is as healthy as possible. Newborn exams are usually performed in the first 12 hours of life to ensure that foals have received the necessary colostrum from the mare in order to have a strong immune system. A thorough exam performed at this time may discover early on if there are any issues that need treatment to prevent future problems. As your foal grows and develops during its first year, it will need close monitoring to make sure it is getting proper nutrition and that limbs are developing normally. We will help you set up a plan for necessary vaccines and deworming, which are also a major part of keeping your foal healthy and protected.
