The Companion Animal Theriogenology Service has opened its doors at the MSU Veterinary Medical Center, and is eager to partner with Michigan veterinarians—and beyond!—to serve the reproductive healthcare needs of patients.

Viviane Gomes, DVM, PhD, DACT, and Ashley Boyce, LVT, have had a busy year since joining the College of Veterinary Medicine. Both came aboard to establish the Hospital’s first-ever dedicated small animal theriogenology service. From procuring incubators to establishing relationships with local veterinary and breeder groups, their days have been full.

In addition, Gomes heads a research lab that delves into the intricate realm of comparative pregnancy physiology, specifically how an adverse intrauterine environment may result in sustained reproductive and cardiometabolic disorders in the affected offspring.

The Hospital looks forward to the many ways Gomes and Boyce will serve the community with their expertise and compassion.
