Reproduction

The Australian Reproduction Veterinarians (ARV) provides a link between its members and government bodies, breed societies and the artificial breeding industry.

The ARV has established performance standards and guidelines for member and non-member veterinarians that recognise the specialised procedures involved in embryo collection, handling, cryopreservation and transfer. 
ARV have achieved this by testing all areas of commercial embryo transfer to ensure that the public can be confident when engaging the services of an ARV certified veterinary surgeon.
