- Embryo transfer is a fantastic way to get one or multiple foals out of your valuable mare. It allows Dr. 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.
Plan A ($2,500) Includes: all ultrasounds, breeding your mare, materials used, collecting (flushing) the embryo from your mare, and transferring the embryo into one of Countryside Veterinary Clinic's recipient mares. This package deal ensures a successful 30-day pregnancy. This package requires a completed contract and a $800 non-refundable deposit before services begin.
Plan B ($3,600) Includes: all ultrasounds, breeding your mare, materials used, collecting (flushing) the embryo from your mare, and transferring the embryo into one of Countryside Veterinary Clinic's recipient mares. Dr. Geary and staff will care for the recipient mare during her pregnancy (feed, veterinary care, vaccinations, deworming, etc.) until the foal is weaned. The $3,600 fee will only be applied when a healthy weanling has resulted. Plan B 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 the option to repeat the process. On average, the total cost for each cycle ranges between $800.00 and $1,000.00. The breakdown of the individual fees are as follows:
Embryo Flush and Recovery - $350.00
Transfer Frozen Embryo - $300.00
Equine Ultrasound Package- $200 includes all ultrasounds or $50 per ultrasound
Mare Care - $15.00 per day for single mare or $15.50 per day for mare and foal. $16.00 per day for draft or half draft mares.
Each Breeding(A.I.): $65.00 Cooled, $85.00 Frozen
Hormone costs for syncing the cycles of the donor and recipient mares – cost varies
