Horse Medical


When it comes to the health and wellbeing of your horse, no one has more medical experience than Hagyard. Not only have we been in existence for more than 135 years, we house some of the top horse veterinarians and equine specialists in the world, and have compiled an exhaustive and comprehensive database on horse health that drives all of our procedures. Some of our cutting edge facilities and equine services are listed below.

McGee Fertility Center
Very few equine veterinary practices have as much experience with the horse breeding industry as Hagyard. The McGee Fertility Center is a center totally devoted to horse fertility and employs three full time equine reproductive specialists. With large numbers of commercial and private breeding farms in the immediate area, Hagyard's strategic placement in Kentucky's heartland ensures we meet the needs of this multi-million-dollar agricultural enterprise.
The McGee Fertility Center's facility includes an advanced state-of-the-art laboratory, an 8 stall barn, a breeding shed with a mechanized phantom mount, and a custom-designed procedures area. In addition, the fertility unit offers a frozen semen storage center for on-site use and worldwide semen distribution in affiliation with Select Breeders Services, as well as an approved quarantine facility for housing, processing, and freezing semen for export.

Despite the steep challenges involving barren mares and sub-fertile stallions, the world-class specialists at McGee Fertility Center are dedicated to improving fertility in all their equine patients. Seeing a healthy newborn foal trot off beside its dam makes it all worth it for us.
