ok some people mate a bitch on cirtain days and some premate

but how many matings do you do?

the most common seen to be 2 matings a day apart

some people are trying 3 matings a day apart and some are mating every day the bitch will stand?

what do you do and why?

If you use the Idexx progesterone test, its quite accurate & only ONE mating is needed as it pinpoints her ovulation time. But you could still do 2

If pre-mate swab then i do 2 matings 48hrs apart.

we use premate blood tests and the vet always tells us to do 2 matings a day apart

Hi,

Is the pre-mate swab the same as ovulation test pads (http://www.ovulationpads.info/), has anyone used these? did you find them to be accurate? or do you prefer the progesterone blood test?

Thanks Gina xx

not something ive used ...........

i have tried the idexx test however the bitch missed and it appears different stud owners feel it should read different levels for when to mate Rolling Eyes


this mating game can be a total nighmere from now on im not premating or idex testing or swabbing any bitch i own if im mating it to a dog i own! instead im listening to my boys and seeing what happens from there!

admittedly if you mate a few days then you have a longer due date but the vets can now take a small amount of blood and tell you if the bitch will whelp in 24 or 48 hours or to re test.... help when deciding to go in for a section i suppose ( this is not something i have done but a friend in the breed has done a few times with sucess)
