Pet Reproductive Services at Bemidji Veterinary Hospital

pet-reproductive-services

At Bemidji Veterinary Hospital, we want the current generation of pets to be healthy, as well as the next generation. That’s why we offer a full range of reproductive services, including:

  • Artificial insemination—Samples are collected from a male (sire) to implant into a female (dam). This can be done manually or surgically.
  • In-house vaginal cytology—Examining the cells under a microscope helps us determine which stage of estrus the patient is in and can aid in deciding when is the optimal time to breed.
  • Brucellosis testing—Some breeders require both the males and females to be tested if they want to breed. Brucellosis is a bacterial sexually transmitted disease (STD) that can cause abortion.
  • C-sections—If the female is having difficulties during labor, sometimes a Caesarean section needs to be performed.
  • Milk replacers—If the female is not producing enough milk for her litter, or is unavailable (due to C-section, is ill, is deceased, etc.) we have formula and supplements that can provide the correct type of nutrients to the newborn kittens or puppies.
  • In-house Progesterone testing—Monitoring the female’s progesterone levels can help determine the ideal time during the heat cycle for a successful breeding.
