Mobile Services

When you are considering breeding your dog, it is of the upmost importance that you ensure your pet’s stress levels are minimised. Otherwise, a high level of stress can cause your bitch to reabsorb her puppies or generally not become pregnant in the first place. That’s why we provide all of our services at our clinic and also from the comfort of your own home.

For example, if you are looking to have your dog progesterone tested to monitor her ovulation, a staff member from Canine Scanning Veterinary Practice will travel to your home and collect a sample of blood from your bitch. This blood is then delivered to our highly-specialised progesterone testing machine (AIA 360) which provides us with a level of progesterone your bitch’s blood. From there, we can continue to monitor her levels to ensure she is mated on the correct day to maximise the chances of a successful pregnancy.

With artificial insemination, Canine Scanning Veterinary Practice will come to your house and perform the A.I. This process is pretty simple – it requires a sample of semen from the stud dog of which is then inseminated into the bitch using sterile and specialist equipment.
