I used Ovuplant to get my bitch into heat a month early. With the coming hunting season I wanted to get the pups to their new homes and have time to get the bitch back into shape before my trip this year, we leave Friday!!!. The bitch MUST be 135 from the previous ovulation. After implantation they start heat on 5-7 days, then ovulate 5-7 days later. I found the heat moves MUCH faster, get progesterone tests starting 4-5 days after starting heat, do NOT go by vaginal smears, they go fast. My bitch had classic progesterone increases, bred with frozen semen 5 days after LH spike, 3 days after ovulation, and we had a great litter. The implant is removed at the time if breeding.
I worked with Dr. Robert Hutchinsen in the Cleveland area to obtain the implant and do the actual breeding. Thanks also to Dr. Mary Tatum and her associates for getting me the semen on short notice. A
