Greetings from the Broadview Reproduction Team!

At Broadview Animal Hospital, we strive to provide quality care with compassion. To maintain a high level of care, we offer reproductive services performed by doctors who have a passion for theriogenology.

We have three doctors on our team who are available for reproductive consultations and breeding services. Dr. Michael Norris, Dr. Heather Berry, and Dr. Wes Chapin are all members of the Theriogenology Society. They received training from the International Canine Semen Bank (ICSB) and Minitube of America (MOFA) on freezing semen and advanced insemination techniques. Carrey Stevens, the lead technician on our reproduction team, holds certifications from ISCB and MOFA as well.

At our hospital, we have many secured and monitored liquid nitrogen tanks for semen storage. In addition we have several team members who are trained and certified by ICSB for collection, freezing, storage, and shipment of semen throughout the world.
