Because of the expense, and critical nature of the appropriate time of insemination, progesterone testing is critical to the breeding process. SoCal Veterinary 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.
Surgical insemination is typically only recommended for use with frozen semen, highly valuable semen, or when fertility issues have been a problem. This is an invasive surgical procedure so it has risks not associated with other insemination techniques. If frozen semen is being used, a surgical AI is typically performed about 72 hours after ovulation. Surgical insemination may be combined with other breeding techniques, such as TCI before the surgical procedure is done; however, repeat surgical inseminations are not performed during the same cycle.
Semen services are performed in-house and most male dogs are easily collected at our clinic.
