I am getting Semen in Friday. My vet is using a new vet in his office that is been practicing less than a year on her own. Has done a lot of A/I but I don't feel really comfortable with her. She has been out everyday to palpate.. (we short cycled her on Friday) and would like to ultrasound everyday if she could. She was 15-.20 monday .20 yesterday and .25 today textbook 3-5mm a day, she wanted to comeout again tomorrow and I stopped her and said for what. .No explanation.. Just to check. We decided we are going to ship semen tomorrow for Friday, and I asked her if she had a syringe without a rubber stopper. she said oh you don't have to worry about that. I have never had a problem.. (I have heard a lot about rubber stoppers being spermicidal) ANyway we will get the fresh cooled semen in two packages one shipment but she suggest only inseminating in one shot to lower risk of foreign bodies and infections. and give her an HCG shot afterwards... and clean her??? Would like your imput on this whole situation. I don't know if I should call my reg. vet or if I am being over protective.?

Hi,
I don't know much at all about AI. And I am no expert in breeding. Just another person looking for a message board to communicate with other horse owners.

My only input is to go with your instincts. I believe that a very calm call to talk to your regular vet would be good. No need for trouble, accusations, confrontations, etc. Just ask appropriate questions and calmly and rationally discuss your concerns (rubber stopper, need for additional ultrasounds... not your discomfort with new vet.) Your vet may well put you completely at ease with the whole situation by saying he would say/do exactly what the new vet is. Would love to hear how this turns out.
Good Luck,
Stephanie
