Reproductive Services

We have been very successful with fresh and frozen semen artificial insemination of dogs, and also offer caesarian delivery (24 hours a day).  We offer in house testing for progesterone levels and Brucella canis.  Ultrasound examination can diagnose pregnancy as early as 30 days.  We often recommend a radiograph which can be performed at 42+ days to evaluate pregnancy and number of fetuses.  Knowing the fetal number and size (compared to dams pelvis) often helps us know when we may have problems with delivery.  

Knowing if your dog is or is not bred also helps us better care for the mother and ensure adequate nutrition for her and her puppies.  Please call us if you have questions about care of your pregnant dog.
