Canine Reproduction

We are proud to offer one of only a few Veterinary Canine Reproduction programs in New England. Dr. Estle has extensive experience and training in many reproduction techniques and she works closely with breeders to decide what is best for their breeding program.

In addition to the following list of services, we also have an on site semen freezing and storage program.

Reproductive Services:

  • Genetic screening (including all OFA, Optigen and PennHip tests)
  • Interpretation and consultation on genetic test results
  • Pre-breeding evaluations
  • Infertility work-up for both the dog and bitch
  • Ovulation timing utilizing progesterone interpretation, vaginoscopy and exfoliative cytology
  • Breeding management
  • Artificial insemination and assisted natural breeding
  • Semen collection and analysis
  • Pre-shipment semen testing
  • Chilled semen preparation and shipment – The Chill/Ship Kit is a system that provides safe shipment of chilled semen and prevents damage to sperm cells due to over-handling during the collection, packaging and shipping process.
  • Pregnancy evaluation

  • Educational seminars
  • and more.

We look forward to improving and supporting your breeding program.
