When planning a breeding timing is everything. The best way to know when your bitch is ready to breed is through progesterone timing. Whether you are planning a natural breeding or any type of insemination, knowing your bitch’s progesterone level will let you know when your pet is ovulating and the best time to breed. Our in-house progesterone testing allows us to get results to you within a few hours. Sometimes multiple progesterone tests are required to determine the best time for breeding. We recommend scheduling your first progesterone on day five of the heat cycle, this recommendation may change based on your pet’s history.
