ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION - An artificial insemination is where a catheter is placed into the females cervix and fresh or chilled semen is injected. We suggest timing your female with a progesterone test to make sure she is bred on the appropriate date.

PROGESTERONE TIMING - We offer Progesterone tests for breeding. Our progesterone test samples are run IN HOUSE using our IDEXX Laboratory machine. Test results take roughly 30 minutes or less to run and we can either have you wait for your result or call you.
SURGICAL IMPLANT - A Surgical Implant involves putting the female dog under anesthesia and the fresh, chilled, or frozen semen is placed directly into the uterus. We always recommend performing progesterone tests on your female before breeding her to make sure that she is ready to breed.
SEMEN EVALUATION & COUNT - A semen evaluation can be performed prior to collection or breeding and we also have a machine that will count the semen as well.
