GR Longworth VMD
Longworth has spent a lifetime with animals. Jerry is a
graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and has credited
his obsession with equine reproduction to his mentors Dr.
Dean Neely, Dr. Patricia Sertich, Dr. Wendy Vaala, Dr.
Richard Beck, and Dr. William Swires. "They have been a
great influence in my decision to pursue equine
Jerry has honed his craft to include
specific technologically advanced services such as Embryo
better known as freezing. "The process of freezing embryos
has come a long way", he said. "We can now flush an embryo
from a mare, freeze it and store it for years, or even just
for use the next year." Vitrification solves some of the
concerns with breeding older mares. "Quality mares that are
getting up there in age are less likely to be reproductively
sound. Vitrification allows us to flush and freeze these
mares' embryos. The embryos can be stored and inserted into
a recipient mare at a later date."
Jerry opened the
doors to his mobile veterinary equine practice in 2004 and
in fall 2009 has taken another giant leap forward by opening
Scottsdale Equine Reproduction Center, LLC.
