Canine Reproduction – Females

Dr. Elizabeth Callahan is a board-certified animal reproduction specialist focusing on canine reproduction. She is the only veterinary reproduction specialist on the Eastern Shore, Maryland and Delaware to offer specialized canine reproduction services. We welcome the breeder’s input and ideas when it comes to their dogs. We are here to work as a team when making decisions that will result in healthy puppies, sires, dams, and future generations. We realize that every breed is unique and requires individual evaluations. The professional team at Veterinary Medical Center offers skill and experience in providing reproductive services to meet the needs of area breeders. Our canine reproductive services are meant for the passionate, committed breeder.

Our female canine reproduction program includes:

Please click on the above female reproduction pages for more information about a particular topic. If you are ready to get started on a breeding program, please call us to schedule a pre-breeding examination with Dr. Callahan.

As with many things, “timing is everything”, especially when it comes to canine reproduction. VMC is available for patients 7 days a week when reproductive procedures cannot wait, such as artificial inseminations, TCIs, semen collection for fresh-chilled shipments and emergency caesarean sections.

(Please Note: After hours emergency c-sections are available ONLY to patients that have been bred by us. For these patients, VMC will assemble a team to respond appropriately.)
