As implied by the words “current therapy,” this text offers the most up-to-date information on diagnosis and management of all facets of horse breeding.
We cannot stress how important proper breeding management is to ensure the success of a breeding operation. Managing the reproduction problems of mares and stallions properly can and will enhance their fertility, whereas mismanagement can reduce fertility even in normal mares and stallions.
The book is divided into eight sections, but basically covers the mare and the stallion and problems with each. Section I covers the normal reproductive system of the mare, and Section II addresses female reproductive problems. Sections III and IV focus on the stallion with normal reproductive system and then reproductive problems. Section V is all about semen collection and evaluation, and Section VI moves into the topic of assisted reproductive techniques. Section VII is devoted to successful breeding strategies for the pregnant mare. The last section wraps up with a discussion of the postpartum breeding mare and any problems or complications that might arise.
