We are pleased to offer several options to dog breeders in the field of assisted canine reproduction. For the stud dog, we can collect and analyze semen, and ship cooled semen anywhere in the country. For the bitch owner, we offer assistance with timing of the canine estrous cycle, including interpretation of vaginal cytology, progesterone and LH levels and timing of insemination. We can receive and inseminate cooled semen. If interested in these services, please contact us several weeks before the bitch is expected to come into season. We also offer pregnancy confirmation by ultrasound and estimation of litter size by radiograph.
Dental care is an important aspect of your pets overall health. This includes a thorough oral exam, prophylactic treatment (routine dental cleaning), and dental radiography and oral surgery when necessary.
Behavior Counseling for Dogs
Behavior problems are the number one reason dogs are relinquished to animal shelters or euthanized each year in this country. We discuss exercises to promote proper socialization and behavior beginning with the first puppy visit. We are happy to discuss training methods and offer behavior counseling at the clinic.
Pain management is a key aspect of patient care and is of utmost importance to us. In keeping with current trends, we offer the latest pain management strategies for both acute and chronic conditions. Pain medications are routinely given with all surgeries. We can discuss your pet’s specific issues and devise a plan to best meet his or her needs.
Diagnostic Laboratory Services
Our clinic recommends the Home Again® microchip system for pet recovery. This procedure is commonly performed at the time of spay or neuter surgery, but can be done during routine wellness appointments as well.
