Department of Theriogenology
 

Introduction

Theriogenology is the branch of Animal Science concerned with reproduction, including the physiology and pathology of male and female reproductive systems of animals and the clinical practice of veterinary obstetrics, gynecology, and andrology. Theriogenologists are veterinarians with advanced training in animal reproduction and obstetrics.
We understand the potential challenges and problems of reproduction and work with our clients and referring veterinarians towards successful outcomes. The CUVAS Theriogenology Team has a broad range of expertise, areas of interest, and clinical experience. The Theriogenology Team works in conjunction with other specialists including our species-specific groups in the other departments of CUVAS.
Our team has active involvement in clinical service including comprehensive consultation for clients and referring veterinarians on reproductive questions, concerns, or issues. Our reproductive laboratories allow us to offer many assisted reproductive technologies including semen cryopreservation, artificial insemination and embryo transfer. The Theriogenology Team is extremely active in clinical training and teaching of veterinarians and veterinary students with the most applicable and updated information. Our involvement in reproductive applied research linked to producer concerns allows us to provide accurate and useful material through outreach and extension programs.
