Breeding Center

• Next to the hospital, a separate breeding unit was built offering a number of reproduction services. Stallions can be assessed for fertility and are stables within this compound which also is capable of being utilized as a Ministry recognized Quarantine Center. The Breeding Center contains our EU certified semen lab where semen is analyzed and prepared for use as fresh, chilled or frozen specimens by our specialist staff for future use. The frozen semen can be stored in hospital containers or shipped at the owners request to a number of different localities. Stallions are examined for infertility / sub- fertility .

• Mares with gynecological problems are presented at the hospital for detailed investigations including endometrial biopsy and video hysteroscopy examination, followed by a full report with recommendations for treatment, follow-up and future management. A full-time reproduction specialist is on staff to provide these and many other services.

• A pregnancy scanning service is available for early stage diagnosis and monitoring of late pregnancy in cases of threatened failure. Twin reduction and fetal gender determination are offered.

• Mares can be presented at the hospital for the performance of an artificial insemination cycle. The owners can choose for fresh semen collected from local stallions. The hospital also provides the frozen semen of a large number of stallions stored at the hospital and available for use. Over the past years the Sharjah Equine Hospital has built up a very good relationship with several leading stallion owning stud farms such as Umm Qarn Farm, Shadwell Estate, French Bloodstock, etc.

• Embryo Transfer is performed upon request.
