Services available:

Progesterone testing

Here at Newbridge Veterinary Clinic we have an in house progesterone machine to determine the exact time of ovulation. The most common reason of a missed conception is due to wrong time of mating i.e. too late or too early.
We take blood samples for progesterone in the morning between 9.30am and 11.30am. We will then advise you on the optimal time of mating(s) or when you should re-test your bitch.

Assisted matings

Many people think you can just leave two dogs together and come up with a healthy litter of pups. Although nature does most of the work , you should monitor the mating throughout the whole process and assist when needed. We offer assisted matings in cases where needed, what ever the problem may be i.e. difficult bitches or inexperienced males etc.
