Fertility testing, artificial insemination and pregnancy scans for dogs

When it comes to mating and breeding, ensuring the health, safety and care of your dog is paramount. At PAW-Lished, I provide a range of services to help you care for your dog at every step of the process.

Factors that dissuade a natural mating

Many problems can affect and prevent mating to occur naturally. It is for these reasons that Artificial Insemination (AI) is the best and most effective remedy to the problems occurring in natural mating. Common examples of problems that can dissuade a natural mating include:-

Behavioural problems, aggressiveness is the most common behavioural problem and the aggressive tendencies almost always come from the bitch. Other Behavioural problems include shyness, poor socialisation, and lack of understanding, especially for the first time canines.

Location constraints are a further example of factors that dissuade natural mating if the male and female canines are located in distant locations.

Anatomical defects are another example of factors that can dissuade a natural mating and some common examples include vaginal septum – a vaginal anomaly that is partition within the vagina; such a septum could be either longitudinal or transverse and vaginal hypoplasia – which refers to the underdevelopment of the vagina or birth canal and may be present in various grades.

Vaginal diseases are an obvious cause of concern for both the stud and bitch owners, especially if the risk of such diseases is increased through the regular stud of the male canine.

Services offered

Artificial Insemination (AI)
Artificial Insemination is an imitation of the natural act of mating. It involves instillation of semen removed from the male dog into the uterus of a bitch during the most fertile time of her estrus cycle. Artificial insemination is an assisted reproductive technique that can be used to compensate for some causes of canine infertility or factors that dissuade natural mating.
Prices start at £40

Progesterone Testing
Progesterone is a hormone and it’s role is to help prepare a female canine body for pregnancy. The progesterone test measures the level of progesterone in the blood and allows us to identify if the female is ovulating and ready to be mated.
Price: £45

Cytology Testing
Vaginal cytology is performed on female dogs during their estrus cycle to help determine the optimum time to breed and enhance the success of pregnancy. The types of cells present in the vagina vary depending on the stage of estrus. A swab is taken of the cells lining the vagina and analyzed under a microscope
Price: £40

Reverse Progesterone testing is also useful to monitor the level as it needs to stay elevated to sustain a pregnancy, it also falls to end a pregnancy and trigger whelping.
