When planning a breeding, timing is everything. The best way to know when your bitch is ready to breed is through progesterone timing. We recommend on day one of the heat cycle giving us a call so that we can accommodate the bitch's timing and our scheduling. Whether you are planning a natural breeding or any type of insemination, knowing your bitch's progesterone level will let you know when your pet is ovulating and the best time to breed.
Our in-house progesterone testing allows us to get results to you within a few hours. Sometimes multiple progesterone tests are required to determine the best time for breeding. We recommend scheduling your first progesterone on day five of the heat cycle; this recommendation may change based on your pet's history.
