Breeding Responsibly With Us

Here at Pet Care on Highland, we take breeding seriously and strive to breed the healthiest animals possible. Among initial exams from head to tail, we also require heartworm testing, and proof of rabies vaccination for all adult females in order to run progesterone tests. Male dogs are also required to be up to date on exams, heartworm testing, and rabies vaccination. It is highly recommended to have your pets established and properly vaccinated well before breeding, due to the high demand of appointments and limited availability.

What To Expect Breeding With Us

Once we determine your pet to be a healthy breeding animal

We will start progesterone testing 5-7 days after your pet starts their heat cycle, ei. swelling, bleeding, flagging, by pulling blood from your females vein. Our blood machine is testing her level of progesterone in hopes to see ovulation. Once we reach ovulation, we determine which days to breed based on how you are choosing to breed her.

Ways To Breed With Us

  • Artificial insemination: 50% success rate, performed twice, day 1 & 3 post ovulation
  • TCI: 80% success rate, performed once, day 2-3 post ovulation
  • Surgical: 80% success rate, performed once, 2-3 days post ovulation

What Are The Main Differences Between A TCI & SI?

A TCI uses a scope to deposit the semen directly beyond the cervix. The female does not go under anesthesia and this procedure normally takes less than 15 minutes. A surgical  insemination causes the female to go under full anesthesia where she will receive an incision from where we deposit the semen directly into the uterus. Choosing this option will result in a longer wait time and your female will take oral antibiotics home.

Confirming Your Female's Pregnancy

At least 30 days after your pet’s breeding we can perform an ultrasound. If you are wanting a scheduled c-section, you will receive your c-section appointment at your ultrasound appointment. (We do require an ultrasound to be performed by us or a licensed vet office.) If you are wanting an x-ray for puppy count, we recommend you do this for free whelping purposes and that you schedule after day 53. (Dogs are typically pregnant for 63 days. We schedule c-sections on day 61 post ovulation in hopes to prevent an unplanned birthing experience for you.)
