Oestrous (heat) detection

If a bitch is not showing clear signs of oestrous, blood testing and, if necessary, swab analysis usually give results within an hour or so of sampling to indicate the optimum time for mating.

Ultrasound pregnancy scanning

from 21 days We have a powerful ultrasound scanner which gives highly detailed images. Normally pregnancy detection is not possible before 28d. However we can often give a positive opinion as early as 21d.

Full Emergency support

Remember if you are unsure of what is going on at any stage of pregnancy or birth you can phone for advice on 01948 820345 at ANY time, day or night. It is far better to call too soon rather than too late!
