We are excited to welcome Dr. Elena Martinez de Andino, VMD, DACT, to the veterinary specialist team of SBS Veterinary Services. She will be an asset to our team as she assists our clients with their equine and canine reproduction needs as well as basic veterinary care. Dr. Martinez de Andino has hit the ground running as she begins to familiarize herself with SBS, its protocols, and clientele.
She graduated from Dartmouth College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Hispanic Studies and went on to receive her degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Pennsylvania in 2016. During her studies in veterinary school, she was a summer research fellow through the Havemeyer Behavior Lab in which she evaluated operant learning performance in foals using target training. After graduating from veterinary school, she completed a rotating equine internship at Mid-Atlantic Equine Medical Center from 2016-2017. Recently, she finished her residency in equine theriogenology at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine where she conducted research on intrafollicular oocyte transfer in conjunction with the Equine Embryo Laboratory. Dr. Martinez de Andino is also a board certified Theriogenologist.
Her professional interests include assisted reproductive techniques including transvaginal oocyte aspiration and embryo transfer, breeding management of “problem” mares and subfertile stallions, and equine behavior.
