I have a two and half year old female HRCH 7 out of 8 finished passes, senior title and 2 for 3 master passes. The last time she was in season was December of 2010. She is worked daily 1 morning session and 1 evening session. My current vet thinks there is nothing wrong she is just worked to hard which is causeing low progesteron levels. She was put on prescription to raise her levels but it didn't. Open to others experience. I live in Chicagoland, does anyone have a reproductive specialist to recomend?

I have a female that never came in until she was 3 years old, and barely came in once a year after that. She recently came in, but hadn't been in for 2 years. She has had a litter of 9. Those wirey working bitches just sometimes don't come in. And that's a good thing at my house considering most of mine are males. :D When I stopped working her for two weeks at 3, that's when she came in season. I use Patti Mesier in Westmont, Il. for my reproduction stuff. The staff can be kinda crabby, but overlook it. They know what they are doing and prices are reasonable. Otherwise, U of I. But I have no personal experience there. I also use Marty Greer, DVM in Lomira Wisconsin if you are up for a drive.

I am not familiar with that whole diagnosis. What was the medication? I would go to a reproduction specialist because that doesn't sound right to me. Have you done a complete thyroid panel? She may be having silent heats or not going into heat. If the thyroid is normal you may need to have her gain some weight and stop training her before you will see a heat cycle as Justicedog said.

I had heard that as well if your female is kept thin and worked often they will not not come into heat. I was also told if that is what you want quit working her and increase the amount of food you give her, to add some wieght to her and she should come in. My female just turned three and she has not had a cycle if she has it has been noticably

I was also told if they are in training they sometimes don't come in. My dog had her first cycle at 18 mo.the but it only happened once we stopped training on a daily basis and started duck hunting which wasn't as mentally demanding.

I can recommend Dr. Joann Randall DVM in Woodstock,IL( northern ). Animal Hospital of Woodstock. 815-337-2900. I have not used her personally, but know friends that have with good results. She hosted a bunch of breeding, reproductive seminars etc. that I attended that were very informative. She seems to be a straight shooter and very approachable. If you live in the city of Chicago this might be a drive for you. But a viable option. I plan on driving out there myself when I need to do a semen check.

I have a Chopper female that will not cycle at running weight and with regular training, I am looking to breed her on her next cycle which should be anytime now. To help that along about 7 weeks ago I stopped training and running her, put her in the house and put 5 pounds on her. She is acting like she is abot to come in.
