BET Reproductive Labs has been a leader in endocrine diagnostic services, reproductive consultation, and pharmacy referral services since 1984. BET originally stood for Bluegrass Embryo Transfers, which was launched in 1979. We have extensive experience in both bovine and equine embryo transfer technology and aspects of management for recipients and donors. Moreover, we have operated a small racing stable for 21 years providing us with an understanding of performance issues and the importance of supplements such as thyroxine, and omega three fatty acids in maintaining top condition for such horses. BET has operated a breeding operation for over 25 years. We understand, first hand, the complicated issues presented by problem mares and stallions. We continue conducting research in both University and clinical settings in the USA and South America. In fact we have operated an endocrine diagnostic lab at the Jockey Club in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil since 1999. This has afforded us the opportunity to become familiar with the effects of differences in nutrition, climate, management and breed on reproductive function. Dr R. H. Douglas, one of the founding members of BET, was an academician for almost 10 years and continues to train graduate students in Brazil studying reproduction in dogs, cats, cattle, sheep and horses. Dr Douglas was recently invited by the editors of the forthcoming new text on equine reproduction, due out in 2010, edited by Dr Angus McKinnon, to write the chapter on endocrine diagnostics.
BET Labs will always provide the most accurate and rapid endocrine assay service available anywhere for a fair price to the veterinary practitioner. As always, we are available to consult with you regarding some of your most challenging endocrine cases.
