Casey and Cranbourne Veterinary Hospital – Breeder Services
At Casey and Cranbourne Veterinary Hospital, we offer a comprehensive range of breeder services. So, if you want to breed from your pet, we can ensure that you have all the right information and can check that your pet is fit and healthy.
It’s important to check for any congenital defects before breeding to ensure healthy puppies and kittens. Failing to get your pet checked by a vet before breeding can result in conditions being passed on to the next generation. This will not only result in possible lifetime medication for those animals but will usually affect whether dogs can be shown professionally.
Ultimately, to protect your pet’s health and that of any babies, being responsible when it comes to breeding is of great importance, and will make the process go a lot more smoothly.
Our breeder services include:
- Progesterone testing
- Vaginal smears and swabs
- Semen collection and evaluation
- Artificial insemination
- Breed-specific blood testing for inherited diseases (sent to an external laboratory)
- Relaxin blood test and/or pregnancy X-ray to confirm pregnancy
- Caesarian section if required
If you do decide to breed from your pet, then our team at Casey and Cranbourne Veterinary Hospital will be on hand every step of the way to monitor their progress. Whether you need artificial insemination services or help with the birthing, we can be of assistance at any stage.
