Hi Jos, I asked you for a name of a theriogenologist and you were kind enought to give me a website to get this information. Well, I checked it out and found a phone number and called. They said they could not find any in Indiana or Illinois. That surprises me that Illinois would not have one listed. She did say there was one in Michigan and would e-mail me the info, but never did.
Would you know if Indiana, Illinois or Michigan would have a theriogenologist?
I have a mare that I'm going to try and breed again this spring, but I need the assistance of a theriogenologist, since the last owners couldn't get her pregnant and we hadn't any luck last year. We tried 4 times. She had Strep and was medicated and retested and everything came back clean and biopsy came back A1. So I need someone that will be able to dig a little deeper to find if there is another problem I'm not aware of.
If this mare doesn't get bred this next year, I'll have to sell her, per my husband. I hate to do this, she had 3 very nice foals in the past and only 9 years old. She is a very nice mare, beautiful, nice confirmation, ect. Please, please help me if you can. I would very much appreciate it!
All I can suggest is searching for one on the theriogenology site, which it appears you have already done. I am not familiar with the region in which you live, so cannot help beyond that. Perhaps try asking at your local veterinary teaching University if the therio search doesn't work.
Another possible solution is to go further south to Lexington Kentucky, where Dr. Michelle LeBlanc is at Rood and Riddle.

Thank you for your help Jos. I have Purdue University somewhat near me, so I'll call and ask them. Thank you for your suggestions. I'll let you know what I find out.
