Canine Reproduction Service Murrieta CA

Canine & Breeding Reproductive Services

Our reproduction team has advanced training, extensive experience in assisting breeders with reproductive issues. Through their guidance and knowledge, we are able to formulate proven techniques, along with advance technology to assist breeders with their dog’s reproductive needs.

Breeding Timing By Progesterone

Because of the expense, and critical nature of the appropriate time of insemination, progesterone testing is critical to the breeding process. SoCal Pet Hospital, provides accurate progesterone testing and can pinpoint the most optimal day(s) to begin breeding. We use the most advance progesterone machine in the market to provide our clients accurate results.

Successful breeding depends on determining the optimum time for insemination. Factors that need consideration include how the semen is prepared, how a particular female cycles and her reproductive history. We maintain equipment dedicated and calibrated for progesterone testing, this allows us to provide accurate same day results Monday to Friday.

Canine Artificial Breeding Services Murrieta CA

Artificial inseminations may be performed by different techniques, fine-tuned to maximize your breeding success depending upon the type of semen being used, the bitch’s timing and age, and the value of the semen being used.

Vaginal artificial inseminations may be performed in the standing bitch once she ovulates. We can perform vaginal artificial inseminations with fresh or chilled semen.

Transcervical inseminations may be performed in the standing bitch. Transcervical insemination also known as TCI can be performed with fresh, chilled or frozen semen. TCI utilizes a scope to pass a catheter through the cervix and deposit the semen into the uterine lumen. TCI may be combined with other types of insemination to maximize coverage during the fertile period.

Surgical insemination is an anesthetic surgical procedure so it has risks not associated with other types of insemination techniques. Surgical insemination may be performed with fresh, chilled or frozen semen. Surgical insemination may be combined with other breeding techniques for additional inseminations but a repeat surgical insemination is not performed during the same heat cycle.
