Re: Progesterone Test
Originally posted by Sholmes
Ive been thru and read all the old threads about breeding and progesterone testing, But what is the optimal number for breeding? Can the vet tell me the exact day to breed the female? Looks like to me that would be hard to do, and i know that every female is different. I had mine tested on about day three just to check and it was at .3 i dont want to waste a bunch of money on tests but i think ill have her tested one more time on about day 9 just to see what it is and try to breed her around day 12, like most guys on this board have suggested? Any comments much appreciated?
Progesterone tests are EVERYTHING and dont let anyone tell you different.
If you dont want to waste money just dont test on day 3 next time . I usually start on day 7 and even at that i feel like ive just donated money to them for this first test cause its always so low most the time. Optimum number depends if your doing chilled or frozen and if your doing surgical ( si ) or transcervical (tsi) .
Im a huge fan and believer in doing surgical with frozen . Ive had females breed on day 13 and have 6 . have had em breed on day 17 and have 14 pups . your right it all depends on the female .
Ive actually had one test at like a 5.0 then skip a day go BACKWARDS to mid 3.0's then skip a day . test and spike all way up to 12 + !!!!!! Some females just progress/move different .
Help you all i can if you want to pm me you can . Ive learned hard way on a few things that cost me alot of money wont do that anymore.

- Live breeding doesn't dictate the future success of a puppy any more than a frozen breeding does.
