Canine Fertility Services
Our services are available in clinic & mobile dependant on location.
*WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS ARE £10 EXTRA*
Pregnancy Scanning £30
Artificial Insemination (AI)
Fresh £40/£50 Chilled Semen
Cytology £25 per test
Canine pregnancy confirmation scans can be performed from 28 days post mating. We always provide a rough number of puppies which are visible at the time of scanning as well as foetal sac measurements to give an estimated due date, where possible. 6 week scans are always advised as this doubly confirms pregnancy after the possible absorption time has passed. Mid-Post Whelping scanning available to make sure all puppies have been delivered.
When performed correctly, this imitates a natural mating. This involves using a small diameter, sterile flexi A.I. tube. It creates a quick, stress & pain free alternative for both male & female. Perfect for maiden, nervous females, creating cross breeds, or for Canine pairs that simply cannot achieve a natural mating. AI also limits transference of Canine STI’s which can be passed on during natural matings & to puppies.
We work with chilled/shipped semen too.
This is the study of vaginal cells taken from your girl during her season to track the fertile window for mating. This is a kinder less stressful method than progesterone testing. We take a small swab sample of the cells inside your girls vagina. This takes seconds, is pain free with results available immediately. The cells are examined under our microscope with results given whilst you wait. We have been practising this service for many years. DRAWING BLOOD FOR PROGESTERONE TESTING IS A VET ONLY PROCEDURE! This is why we only offer Cytology, which has better overall success rates as it simply tracks ovulation.
Semen Analysis £40
Semen is collected from the male and analysed to check for motility and morphology and to ultimately asess the suitability for future breeding. We can also advise if any infection is present.
You will be provided with a video of the sample and we are happy to post onto our social media as proof the analysis has taken place.

We can ship semen throughout the UK and worldwide. This is perfect for stud owners & breeders alike when distance is an issue.!

We arrange the shipping too so all you need to do is provide the male.

We can chill semen in clinic for you to take away with you instantly. We can be used as a meet half way clinic for distance issues, where we can inseminate a fresh sample and split it to be chilled for you to take away.
Semen Washing £50

Real reviews from real people, as seen on our social media platforms & Google reviews
"I fully recommend these wonderful ladies!! After an experience with my local vet that wasn't good at all I was given the number for Canine Fertility Care. I booked an appointment with them and it was the best thing I could have done. They were so caring with my girl, and took time with her and never rushed us, before sending me the scan pictures. We could not have asked for a better experience and I'm very grateful for their help. Five star service!"
