Reproductive Specialty Services

We are a Full-Service Veterinary Reproductive Facility

At North Oatlands Reproduction Center, we understand the importance of successful breeding, and offer comprehensive, state-of-the-art canine reproductive services for both males and females. We perform a full breeding soundness evaluation and recommend that your dog have the appropriate health tests for the breed prior to breeding.

Our canine reproductive services include:

  • Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) Testing – includes hip, elbow, thyroid, heart & patella and is utilized by the majority of canine breeders to determine medical soundness for breeding through identification of joint dysplasia or other specific abnormality. Our X-ray suite exceeds the standard required for radiograph submission for Hip, Elbow, Patella, Thyroid & Heart evaluation. Click here for more information on the OFA mission.
  • Penn Hip Evaluations- PennHIP (University of Pennsylvania Hip Improvement Program) is a not-for-profit program operated, by the University of Pennsylvania. PennHIP incorporates a new method for evaluating the integrity of the canine hip. It is accurate in puppies as young as 16 weeks of age and has great potential to lower the frequency of CHD when used as a selection criterion. Our X-ray suite exceeds the standard required for radiograph submission for PennHip Evaluation.
  • Brucellosis Testing – determines exposure to sexually transmitted diseases specific to canines.
  • Heritable Disease Management – this genetic testing ensures that the candidate is carrying sound genes free of inheritable disease.
  • After Hours Pediatric & Obstetric Emergency Services – we make every effort to be available for our clients and their pets when reproductive procedures can’t wait.
