Dr. Leigh McBride graduated from the
University of Florida Veterinary Medicine in 1984. She started her private
practice in December of that year after a 6 month internship at another
veterinary hospital. Her practice gravitated very quickly to an interest in
“show dog” medicine due to her avid love of the sport of purebred dogs.
A portion of that direction would have to
include the reproduction of these high quality animals. Dr. McBride has studied
extensively and attended continuing education classes on the most recent
developments in canine reproduction. A significant portion of her time and
energies have been devoted to reproduction problems, chilled semen collections,
inseminations and frozen semen procedures.
Dr. McBride is proud of her affiliation and
certification with Camelot Farms frozen Semen Preservation System in December
2003. Their quality of success in the field closely matched her own desires to
be able to propagate quality animals long past their time on earth.

love of showing and breeding drives both Alison and Dr. McBride. After

program for frozen semen. Alison and Dr. McBride flew to Camelot Farms in
College Station, TX and had an intensive course study learning the ins and
outs of frozen semen.
