Pre Mate Testing 

Page image

Routine Information Menu

If you are planning on breeding from your bitch, it is advantageous to have your dog pre mate tested to determine the exact time of ovulation.

Mating at the correct time minimises unsuccessful mating and can also result in larger litters of puppies

The procedure is very simple and relatively painless to perform. A small blood sample is collected, which will then be tested in our laboratory and results will be with us within a few hours.

This is a very popular procedure, especially where breeders are travelling long distances for the chosen stud dog.

How does it work?

Our testing kits work by measuring the levels of progesterone in the Bitch’s blood. From this we are to tell when ovulation is imminent or has occurred.

Blood samples are usually taken on the 7th or 8th day from the start of the season, then repeated as necessary until ovulation has taken place.
