Upper Echelon Kennels LLC offers the following services

Progesterone testing

A quantitative progesterone blood test is the single most accurate method for timing breedings. The test is reported as a numeric result, usually ng/dl. Combined with observing the behavior of the dog and bitch, vaginal cytology, and ovulation can be pinpointed with great accuracy in most bitches.

Reverse Progesterone testing

Progesterone levels fall at the end of a dam’s pregnancy to trigger whelping.¬†Reverse progesterone testing is an important test.
This is because progesterone levels fall to a certain degree around the time your puppies are ready to be born.

Artificial insemination

An incision is made into the abdomen, the uterus is then identified and exteriorized. The semen is then injected directly into the uterine horns. It can only be carried out once during the bitch’s heat. Further, surgical insemination does not increase conception rates or litter sizes.

Official service animal/emotional support animal certification

An ESA letter from a licensed mental health professional is the only legally acceptable way to have a recognized emotional support dog. You must have a qualifying mental health condition that is alleviated by the presence of a support dog.

Ultrasounds

An ultrasound examination is a non-invasive imaging technique that allows internal body structures to be seen by recording echoes or reflections of ultrasonic waves. Unlike X-rays, which are potentially dangerous, ultrasound waves are considered to be safe.
