Palm Beach Equine Medical Centers Open Aiken Equine Embryo Transfer

Aiken, SC—World-renowned veterinary clinic Palm Beach Equine Medical

Centers, headquartered in Wellington, Florida, recently purchased the

New Bridge Embryo Centre in Aiken, South Carolina. The goal is to

continue to provide top-notch equine embryo transfers to the polo

market, while expanding the services to the sport horse and performance

horse markets at the facility, which is now called the Palm Beach

Equine Embryo Center (PBEEC). Palm Beach Equine Medical Centers have

been leaders in the veterinary care of Olympic and World Championship

horses, along with world-class polo ponies, racehorses and other equine

athletes. They are the Official Veterinarian of the Winter Equestrian

Festival, the Palm Beach Dressage Derby CDI and other international

equestrian events.

“Although we have become well-known for our care of competition horses,

we recognize the need for a world-class reproductive center,” explains

Dr. Scott Swerdlin, President of Palm Beach Equine Medical Centers.

“The Palm Beach Equine Embryo Center will serve mare owners

nationwide.” State of the art reproductive facilities, safe stabling,

lush pastures and a collection of polo stallions are on offer. In the

works are a catalogue of top sport horse stallions and additional

reproductive and veterinary services.

Dr. Swerdlin continues, “Polo breeders have recognized the importance

of using their most competitive mares for producing future generations

of athletes. At some of the top international polo tournaments it is

not uncommon to see three generations of mares competing alongside one

another. We want to make this more commonplace in the sport horse and

performance horse industries. Some of the industry’s best mares don’t

finish competing until they are nearly 20 years old, which means they

have exceptional athletic ability and soundness—exactly the type of

mares that should be reproducing. Embryo transfer is the perfect

solution for the competitive mare and her owner.”

Mare owners can either ship their mare to the Aiken facility or have

their mare inseminated while she is competing, regardless of whether

she is in Florida, California, Texas or New York. The Palm Beach Equine

Embryo Center veterinarians will work with mare owners’ vets to ensure

that the process is seamless and results in the next generation of

athletes. Once the embryo is 7-8 days old, it is flushed and placed

within one of the PBEEC’s high quality recipient mares. Dr. Swerdlin

explains, “Our recipient mares are chosen for their fertility,

temperament, maternal nature and overall health and soundness. We have

one of the best bands of recipient mares in the country.” Once the

recipient mare is confirmed pregnant at 35 days via ultrasound, the

owner can have the mare shipped anywhere nationwide, or leave her on

the hundreds of acres of pasture in Aiken.

In addition to embryo transfer, other reproductive and veterinary

services are offered in Aiken. PBEEC clients have access to the Palm

Beach Equine Medical Centers’ staff that includes more than 20

world-class veterinarians that are recognized in the industry for their

expertise. They have pioneered many state of the art techniques and

procedures for lameness, reproduction, kinesiology, internal medicine,

alternative medicine and more. Please visit http://www.palmbeachembryo.com
