Finding optimal breeding times
It's not always possible as a breeder to identify the most optimal time to mate your female. This is a crucial period of your breeding journey and correctly to identify when to mate can help with:
Progesterone is the main progestogenic steroid hormone secreted by the female reproductive system and is connected with the female menstrual cycle, pregnancy and embryo formation and development. This means it's an ideal indicator for detecting ovulation through blood testing.
Using laboratory equipment a blood sample from an animal in season can be measured for it's progesterone concentrations in blood serum. This quantitative result can then be used to indicate if your pet has ovulated and also predicate when she may ovulate. This ability to be able to interpret and forecast such information means more successful matings due to identifying the 'fertile period'. Results above 5ng/ml indicate ovulation (see graph).
