Reproductive Assessment (Breeding Soundness Evaluation)

If potential breeding pairs are housed together, but mating is not observed or does not result in a pregnancy, the reason needs to be determined. A reproductive assessment of the male and/or female (including ultrasound, hormone measurements as well as endoscopy or semen collection if applicable) may shed light on the possible causes.

Furthermore, such examination becomes necessary to evaluate the general reproductive fitness and to assess the application possibilities of ART.
