- Embryo transfer is a fantastic way to get one or multiple foals out of your valuable mares without comprising the use of them. It allows Dr. Richard Geary to take the genetic material from your mare and stallion of choice and place it in a recipient mare for gestation. Countryside Veterinary Clinic is proud to offer two package deals on this service.
Package Deal 1: Includes all ultrasounds, covering your mare, all materials used, collecting the embryo from the donor mare (flushing), embryo placement into one of Dr Geary's recipient mares, and use of one of Countryside Veterinary Clinic's recipient mares. This package deal ensures a successful 30-day pregnancy. At this time, a fee of $2,400.00 will be applied to your account.
Package Deal 2: Includes all ultrasounds, covering your mare, all materials used, flushes, embryo placement, use of one of Countryside Veterinary Clinic's recipient mares, and care for the recipient mare during her pregnancy (feed, veterinary care, vaccinations, deworming, etc.) until the foal is weaned. At the time of weaning, a fee of $3,200.00 will be applied to your account. We stress that this fee will only be applied when a healthy weanling has resulted from Countryside Veterinary Clinic's services. There will be no expense to you for any of the above listed services until you have a weaned foal in your trailer to take home. The second package deal protects your investment from spontaneous abortion, birthing complications, or any other problem that might arise with the foal until he/she is weaned.
In addition to these package deals, we also work with clients who wish to go through this process with their own recipient mares. In these cases, fees are assigned to individual services at the time they are given and there is no guarantee of pregnancy. If it doesn’t work the first time, you have to repeat the process. On average, the total cost for each cycle accumulates to between $800.00 and $1,000.00. The breakdowns of those individual fees are as follows
Embryo Recovery - $350.00
Embryo Transfer - $300.00
Equine Ultrasound - $150 package, $40 per ultrasound.
Mare Care: $15.00 per day, per dry mare; $15.50 per wet mare
Each Breeding(A.I.): $65.00 Cooled, $85.00 Frozen
Hormone costs for syncing the cycles of the donor and recipient mares – cost varies
At Countryside Veterinary Clinic, we recognize that many clients do not own any recipient mares. For your convenience, we offer the use of our recipient mares to our clients. Package deals are available. Please contact our clinic at 208-624-1711 for information regarding our services or to schedule an appointment.
