The Pet Clinic is able to assist pet owners in determining the optimum amount of time to bread your dogs and enhance the success or pregnancy if you're looking to improve the conception rates in your breeding program.
We're able to perform vaginal cytology on female dogs to calculate the stage of estrus. This involves taking a swab of the vaginal cells and analyzing them under a microscope. Another method is to perform a simple blood test to determine the luteinizing hormone (LH) surge and pinpoint your dog's fertile period.
With these helpful tests, we're able to rule out any potential problems or alert us of any issues that need to be addressed before the breeding process begins.
Typically, most animals give birth without any issues or complications. However, there are times when mothers need additional help with their delivery. First, we attempt to resolve the problem using medical therapy, but if that doesn't solve the problem, we will perform a caesarean section.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
