A Journey of Love, Nurtured by Expertise

In Newport Beach, CA, at Urbanvet, we understand that dog breeding is a significant decision that demands a commitment to the well-being of the dam (female dog) and her puppies. Responsible breeding requires careful planning, diligent care, and a deep understanding of your dog’s needs.

Crafting Miracles through Careful Dog Breeding

Urbanvet offers insightful, expert dog breeding services. Read below to learn more!

1. Pre-Breeding Health Assessment:

Before embarking on the breeding journey, schedule a comprehensive veterinary checkup for both the male and female dogs. This ensures they are in excellent health and free from genetic conditions or infections that could be passed on to the puppies.

2. Proper Nutrition:

Maintain a balanced diet for both dogs, and consider adding prenatal supplements, such as folic acid, for the female. Consult with your veterinarian to determine the most suitable diet plan for your breeding pair.

3. Understanding the Reproductive Cycle:

Each breed and individual dog may have unique reproductive cycles. Consult with a veterinarian or canine reproduction specialist to determine the optimal timing for breeding.

4. Pregnancy Care:

During pregnancy, provide your female dog with the utmost care:

  • Schedule regular prenatal checkups with your veterinarian.
  • Adjust her diet to support her changing nutritional needs.
  • Balance her exercise with periods of rest to ensure a healthy pregnancy.

5. Whelping Assistance:

Prepare a comfortable and quiet whelping area for the birthing process. While most dogs can manage labor on their own, be on hand to provide assistance if complications arise.

6. Puppy Care:

After birth, monitor the puppies closely. Ensure they are nursing well, gaining weight, and staying warm. Follow a vaccination and deworming schedule recommended by your veterinarian.

7. Responsible Placement:

Once the puppies are ready to leave their mother, ensure they find loving, permanent homes. Screen potential adopters carefully and provide them with essential information on responsible dog ownership and breed-specific traits.

Breeding dogs is a significant responsibility, but with proper care and guidance, it can be a fulfilling journey. UrbanVets is here to support you through every stage of the process, from pre-breeding health checks to finding loving homes for your puppies. We believe in responsible breeding, where the health and well-being of your canine companions are the top priorities.
