What is Theriogenology?


Theriogenology encompasses all aspects of veterinary reproductive medicine and surgery. This includes the basic sciences of anatomy, physiology, pathology and pharmacology, as well as all aspects of clinical practice related to male and female animal reproduction, obstetrics, and neonatology. The term Theriogenology is derived from the ancient Greek words "Therio” meaning beast or animal, "gen” as in genesis meaning creation, generation, and "ology” meaning study of. Theriogenology gathers mammals, both male and female, and reproduction, both physiology and pathology.


The precursor of the Society for Theriogenology (SFT) was founded in 1954 as the Rocky Mount Society for the Study of Breeding Soundness of Bulls. Veterinarians with an interest in animal reproduction worldwide may become members. The Society for Theriogenology is an organization of veterinarians dedicated to animal reproduction, whose mission is to promote standards of excellence in reproductive medicine, to provide outreach and education to veterinarians, and to foster continual improvements in Theriogenology.
