Canine Progesterone Testing

Canine progesterone testing is a crucial part of cycle management.  Measuring the progesterone curve allows us to more accurately determine the most optimal time for breeding, and therefore increase conception rates.  While older data tells us that we need to breed when the progesterone reaches a certain number, we now know that every dog is going to have a different progesterone curve unique to that individual.  The accurate interpretation of this curve is crucial, and when done in conjunction with vaginal cytology and behavioral signs it is an invaluable part of cycle management.
