Warren House Veterinary Centre surgeons have been successfully performing the artificial insemination of horses for over 20 years! In this time the practice has gathered a huge amount of experience in all aspects of assisted reproductive techniques in horses. In 1992 we performed the first successful frozen semen insemination in the UK, with semen actually frozen in the UK, achieving a pregnancy in one of John Newcombe’s own mares, foaling down in 1993. Every year Warren House Farm accepts over 100 mares for insemination using chilled or frozen semen. Artificial insemination does not exclusively have to occur at our fertility clinic. The practice also routinely examines mares at our clients’ yards or satellite surgeries, which enables the accurate timing of insemination with fresh or chilled semen.Warren House Veterinary Centre ( formerley Newcombe and East) is a BEVA certified AI practice for fresh, chilled and frozen semen.
