Weatherford Equine Oocyte Services
Weatherford Equine was the first reproductive center to offer oocyte services in the North TX area back in 2013. Since then Dr. Young has performed thousands of aspirations and is very experienced in providing for all the needs associated with collecting oocytes from mares to undergo ICSI fertilization. He can perform pre-ovulatory aspirations, immature aspirations, or post mortem collections.
Mares can be managed at our facility or on a haul in basis. We also work closely with referring veterinarians that may wish to manage the mares and ensure the mares are prepared for a scheduled outpatient aspiration.
We have strong working relationships with the top ICSI labs in the country and can assist in coordinating semen delivery to be used to inject the oocytes.
We also work closely with the ICSI labs to coordinate shipping embryos back to Weatherford Equine for transfer, or to the recipient facility of the embryo owners choice, once the embryos are ready.
Weatherford Equine’s ultimate goal is to work with both mare owners and stallion owners to maximize the number of live foals conceived via ICSI.
EXPERIENCE THAT MATTERS
- First to offer oocyte aspirations in North TX (est. 2013)
- Over 2,500 successful/safe aspirations performed to date
