therio Theriogenology (Reproductive Medicine)

New clients: Register your pet with NorthStar VETS online

The branch of veterinary medicine dedicated to diagnosing and treating male and female reproductive problems is called theriogenology. The word theriogenology originates from the ancient Greek words "Therio" meaning beast or animal, "gen" as in genesis meaning creation, generation, and "ology" meaning study of. Theriogenologists are veterinarians with advanced training in this field.
