Pet Breeding Services in Pittsburg
At Pittsburg Veterinary Clinic, we can perform vaginal cytology on female dogs to help determine the optimum time to breed and enhance the success of pregnancy. To do so, we take a swab of the vaginal cells and analyze them under a microscope. Usually more than one swab is required.
Additional tests, including a thyroid analysis, should be performed on your dog before her estrus cycle. These tests can rule out any potential problems or alert you to issues that need to be addressed before breeding.
We Can Perform Canine Caesarian Section Procedures
Most animals give birth without any complications. However, mothers occasionally need help with delivery. We usually attempt to resolve the problem using medical therapy first, but if that doesn’t solve the issue, we will perform a caesarian section.
During a c-section, the mother is:
- given an anesthetic
- an incision is then made along her abdomen and through the uterus to retrieve unborn puppies or kittens
- In some situations, we may recommend that the mother be spayed during this procedure, usually to prevent future problems of this nature
We Perform Canine Artificial Insemination
At Pittsburg Vet we perform surgical canine and equine Artificial Insemination and can monitor the health during the gestation by means of blood/hormone checks, ultrasound and palpation.
In preparation of breeding bovine semen evaluation and hormone monitoring of canine, bovine and equine services are also offered.
