Ovum pick up (OPU) is the collection of one or more oocytes by transvaginal ultrasound guided aspiration.
The horse is sedated, locally anesthetized and gets painkillers and she gets antibiotics preventively. OPU is possible all year. The purpose of OPU is to fertilize oocytes, by intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

Why opu?
If the mare has oviduct problems
If the mare has uterine problems, such as adhesions or large cysts
Subfertile mare and / or stallion
Deceased stallion with scarce frozen semen
If the mare has just died and you still want offspring of the mare
