What are the reproduction services you offer?

Our veterinary team offers a variety of reproductive services, including:

  • Canine Reproductive Planning – since timing is key, we offer semen evaluations (motility, morphology, and concentration) for male pets and female reproductive exams (in-house progesterone testing and vaginal cytology) for female pets for the best breeding results
  • Semen Collection for Shipping – we use the minitube CaniPlus Chill LT semen extender to collect and assess the semen of stud dogs. We cannot freeze semen at our hospital, but we do ship chilled samples
  • Artificial and Surgical Insemination – we perform routine, fresh chilled and surgical inseminations
  • Pregnancy Diagnosis and Radiographs – we use our in-house ultrasound to confirm pet pregnancies after day 30 and digital X-rays approximately one week before whelping to evaluate the fetal size and estimate litter size.
  • Whelping and Caesarean Sections – when your pet is giving birth, we’re able to offer C-sections as a way to safely deliver puppies

  • COVID-19 UPDATE: Measures we are taking
