A growing family?
Breeding and reproduction are not subjects to be taken lightly. This is a decision that must be made after careful consideration of all the facts.
Raising puppies is a daily challenge, equipped with all essential facts and information. It will give you an idea of what it takes to have a growing pet family.
In any event, before you start the actual breeding process, you would be wise to consult your vet. They are just as concerned as you are about your pet’s wellbeing… as well as the wellbeing of any future offspring. Your vet is dedicated to animals and will support you throughout the process, with check ups and follow ups, just as your family GP would do with growing human beings. Breeding takes skill, genetic testing and ideally, ANIMA-Québec certification.
Once you’ve made the decision to go ahead, you need to find a “mate”. However, did you realize that artificial insemination is also possible? Ask your vet if they are able to offer this service of if they can refer you to someone who does. Your vet will be happy to help in any way they can, using their experience and expertise to support you and your pet.
We also encourage you to visit sites such as www.animaquebec.com. A new certification is available for people interested in professional breeding.
