We are a Full Service Canine Reproductive Facility
The reproductive veterinary team at Dominion Valley Animal Hospital provides state-of-the art canine reproductive services for both males and females. We understand the importance of each breeding and we want each breeding to be a successful one. We recommend performing the appropriate health tests for your breed prior to breeding your dog.
Our canine reproductive services include:
- Reproductive Services for Females

- OFA Testing: hip, elbow, thyroid, heart & patella
Utilized by the majority or canine breeders, this procedure determines medical soundness for breeding through identification of joint dysplasia or other specific abnormality. OFA is short for Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. You can visit this non-profit organization's website at http://www.offa.org for more information on their mission. Dominion Valley Animal Hospital's X-ray suite exceeds the standard required for radiograph submission for Hip, Elbow, Patella, Thyroid & Heart evaluation.
- Penn Hip Evaluations
PennHIP (University of Pennsylvania Hip Improvement Program) is a not-for-profit program, wholly owned and operated, by the University of Pennsylvania. PennHIP incorporates a new method for evaluating the integrity of the canine hip. It is accurate in puppies as young as 16 weeks of age. It has great potential to lower the frequency of CHD when used as a selection criterion. Visit this link What is PennHIP? for more information on this technique. NOAH's X-ray suite exceeds the standard required for radiograph submission for PennHip Evaluation.
