We offer a wide range of reproductive services for our clients with an interest in breeding. Dr. Joan Stuart-Hay has been practicing reproductive medicine for many years. Some breeding animals require a tremendous amount of planning and veterinary assistance to produce a litter of puppies and Dr. Stuart Hay is here to help with her experience and expertise. We routinely perform artificial insemination using fresh and chilled semen allowing a breeder to potentially utilize any number of dogs in the country for breeding. We also perform surgical insemination using frozen semen. For the owner of a male dog, we can collect and ship semen using extenders which help keep the sperm alive until arrival at their destination. Sperm evaluation including observations on numbers of sperm and their overall motility can help determine if a male dog is capable of being used for breeding purposes.
Our staff is experienced in Cesarean section which is often needed, both as a planned event or as an emergency procedure.
