Horse Artificial Insemination Packages

These are the prices for our AI packages for 2013. They include the basic requirements for chilled or frozen AI. Please call us at the Kilmarnock clinic to discuss your individual mare's requirements.

Packages do not include visit fees. All these procedures can be preformed at the clinic. Bringing your mare to the clinic is often a good way to reduce the overall costs as it means that you do not have a visit fee.

This includes:

  • Ultrasound and vaginal speculum examinations
  • Clitoral swab for CEM and blood sample for EIA and EVA (including lab fees)
