The Drakenstein Veterinary Clinic is located in arguably the heart of the Thoroughbred breeding industry in the Western Cape. We provide comprehensive ambulatory breeding services to prominent stud farms and assist smaller breeding operations as well. Services include reproductive examinations for both mares and stallions, evaluation of infertility and various other reproductive procedures. Using world-leading techniques, our aim is to assist in all aspects of reproductive care and to provide a successful resolution ultimately leading to improved conception rates, maintenance of pregnancy and the delivery of a healthy foal.

We work with the referring veterinarian, developing a tailor-made plan for a particular horse and client, keeping in mind what is in the best interest of both parties.
