Ensuring the health and safety of your breeding female and her new litter – from insemination to birth, to nursing, and beyond – is at the root of all of the services provided by Bulger’s veterinary reproductive health team.

While natural insemination and birth are ideal, neither is always the norm; every animal and every pregnancy is unique. Consider working with a team of medical professionals trained and skilled in all aspects of your cat or dog’s reproductive health when the time comes to breed them for the first or even the last time.

What can I expect when I breed my female with the help of the Animal Reproductive Health team at Bulger?
