Our clinic is able to offer a wide range of services for breeders, in order to make their job easier, more profitable and more importantly, safer.
We are located North of the River, and offer care for both mum and all of her babies, from the first signs of heat, all the way through to litter vaccinations and desexings.
CARE SERVICES THROUGHOUT THE BREEDING CYCLE
We use blood tests for progesterone levels using our in-house testing machine, to figure out when ovulation will occur. Progesterone testing may also be performed prior to a cesaerean.
We offer discounted vaccinations, microchippings and desexings for litters. We also offer pre-purchased desexing vouchers, which the new owners can redeem.
We offer help and advice with milk production, and whelping, as well as providing post operative care to mum.
We stock Wombaroo Bottles, Teats, Formula and Colostrum
We offer high quality c-sections, with an experienced team of both veterinary surgeons & nurses. We offer elective cesareans at an affordable price.
Emergency cesareans are available upon prior request.
*Incurs an on-call fee and after-hour surgery fee.
Once an ovulation date has been determined, we can assist you with sperm collection, counts and analysis, vaginal and trans cervical inseminations.
We perform pregnancy ultrasounds from 28 days, as well as prior to ceseareans, to determine the safest time to deliver. We can also perform radiography, which requires sedation.
Transcervical Insemination is where we use video endoscopy to locate the cervix, and then deposit the semen via a catheter for inauterine insemination.
Vaginal insemination is performed using the same procedure, however the semen is deposited into the vagina, not into the uterus.
TCI differs to surgical insemination as it does not require general anaesthesia, or even sedation. It also does not require a surgical operation, making it safer for mum, and more affordable to you. Both procedures allow deposition of semen into the uterus, ultimately providing the same result.
So the next time you are planning a litter, choose TCI. The safest, most ethical and affordable method of inauterine insemination.
