Reproductive services in veterinary medicine includes fertility treatments, insemination, pregnancy surveillance and delivery. As your pet gets further along in their pregnancy, our doctors will be there to monitor your pet’s health to ensure an easy delivery and a fast recovery by mother and babies. We offer ultrasound services, blood work and any medicine needed by the mother.
When it is time for your pet to deliver we can help by providing delivery services or advising you on how to safely monitor a delivery in your own home. Certain types of pets require cesarean sections for delivery and that will be done within our clinic by a qualified physician and trained staff.
Once your pet has delivered her babies Mandeville Animal Hospital will follow her recovery and monitor the health of her litter through deworming and first shots. Call our clinic to set up an appointment if you are interested in breeding your pet or know that your pet is expecting.
The staff at Mandeville Animal Hospital can help those that breed their animals in areas of fertility and insemination. We are able to test for infertility in males and females for breeding purposes. Our staff is also able to collect semen samples from males for the purposes of breeding. Artificial insemination includes surgical and vaginal insemination. Surgical insemination is done by the doctor using general anesthesia and placing the semen from the male directly into the uterus through an incision in the abdomen. A less invasive method is vaginal insemination which is the most common method used.
