About Our Theriogenology Service

The Theriogenology Service offers individual animal treatment and herd health consultations for beef and dairy herds as well as reproductive management and planning. The service offers routine breeding soundness evaluations and test breeding of bulls, breeding soundness evaluations of cows/heifers, pregnancy diagnosis and fetal sexing. Additionally, the college offers management of obstetrical cases including providing expertise in the management of high-risk pregnancies and difficult births (dystocias) through vaginal deliveries and caesarean sections.

Management of breeding injuries including restorative surgery for breeding injuries in males and females is also available.  Farm visits allow our clinicians, residents and students the opportunity to evaluate herds and aid in design and implementation of health maintenance programs. These programs evaluate nutrition, vaccination protocols, biosecurity and reproductive management in order to improve reproductive efficiency and production for our clients.
