Breeding Your Animal
Our team of vets knows the financial investment and personal dedication that is required when it comes to breeding purebred dogs and cats for our Capitola clients.
Whether this is your first time breeding your cat or dog, you are a veteran breeder or if you are even just considering it as an option for your furry friend, the veterinary team and our resident dog and cat breeding expert, Dr. Nichola Mohr, are here to help with consultations and dedicated services.
We are committed to helping make sure that you and your animal have a stress-free experience as you move through each part of the breeding process. We want your cat or dog to have a healthy and seamless conception, pregnancy and birthing process.

Surgical Artificial Insemination
Surgical Artificial Insemination (SAI) is performed under a general anesthetic and takes approximately 30 - 45 minutes to complete.
Female pets with long-standing fertility issues are often good candidates for Surgical Artificial Insemination as well as cases where the semen quality is impaired for one reason or another.
