Q: What’s a theriogenologist?

A:  A veterinarian who is a reproductive specialist. 

While many veterinarians are qualified to do reproductive work, a board-certified theriogenologist is usually called in when special expertise is required.  Examples include:  fertility problems, insemination with frozen semen, special insemination techniques (deep horn insemination, for example), embryo transfer, etc. 

While your regular veterinarian can probably refer you to a theriogenologist, The Society for Theriogenology can help you locate one here:  http://www.therio.org/search.cfm
