Is Breeding Right for You?
There are many reasons to want to breed your pet. At Warren Animal Hospital, we’ll help you answer the questions above and prepare you for your new furry bundles of joy!
Before you breed, consider the following:
- Is your pet fit and healthy?
- Can you afford to pay for veterinary care for your pet and their litter?
- Could you handle a large litter of 10 or 12 puppies?
- Do you have time to devote to the litter until they are old enough to go to their new homes?
- Would you be able to find good homes for the puppies?
Reproduction Planning at Warren Animal Hospital
Our veterinary team can assist you in determining the optimum time to breed your dogs and enhance the success of pregnancy using one of two methods.
First, we can perform vaginal cytology on female dogs to calculate the stage of estrus. This method involves taking a swab of the vaginal cells and analyzing them under a microscope. Usually, more than one swab is required.
Another method we can use is to perform a simple blood test to determine the luteinizing hormone (LH) surge and pinpoint the dog’s fertile period.
Additional tests, including a thyroid analysis, should be performed on your dog before estrus. These tests can rule out any potential problems or alert you to issues that need to be addressed before breeding.
Cesarean Sections for Birth
Most animals give birth without any complications. However, mothers occasionally need help with delivery. At Warren Animal Hospital, our veterinarians usually attempt to resolve the problem using medical therapy first. However, if medical intervention doesn’t solve the issue, we will perform a cesarean section, also known as a c-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, our Phillipsburg pet breeding specialists may recommend that the mother be spayed during this procedure, usually to prevent future problems of this nature.
