We have used the very successful Camelot system for freezing dog semen for a number of years. In a recent calculation of our last 67 inseminations, we had a success rate of over ninety per cent (90%) in pup.
We can take, freeze and store semen from your male dog. This can be stored at the Shirley Veterinary Clinic for use in the future.
We have received and used semen from countries such as Australia, America, England, South Africa and Europe. Puppies have been born from semen frozen down over twenty years ago. We can freeze and send semen overseas for you.
If you are interested in freezing semen we suggest two very good websites: camelotfarms.com & frozenpuppies.com.au
The veterinarians and nurses at Shirley Veterinary Centre have experienced knowledge on greyhounds and greyhound care.
We provide Veterinarians who take care of all the veterinary care at the Christchurch Greyhound Racing club, like Lesley Roberts who has been a veterinarian for the club for many years.
We also work with some greyhound rehoming organisations and assist with de-sexing and health care checks.
Is your puppy aged between 6-16 weeks? Are you wanting to learn skills to teach your puppy? Are you wanting your puppy to learn good valuable social skills in a safe environment? If you have answered yes to any of these questions then Puppy Preschool School is a must for your puppy!
The class will cover basic do’s and don’ts, feeding, grooming, how to deal with undesirable behaviours, vet advice, toys, travelling in the car, toilet training, teaching puppies to sit, come when called, stay and wait, walking on the lead, lie down and many other useful tricks and commands.
Puppy Preschool classes are held at the Shirley Vet Centre on Sunday nights at 5 pm. The class is run over three weeks and the classes have a mixture of both theory and practical information. The cost of the course is $115 for the 4 classes and puppies that graduate will receive a puppy pack and certificate. When your puppy attends the classes please bring puppy with a collar on and on a lead, their favourite toy, and a smile.
To enrol your puppy in a class please contact the Shirley Vet Centre.
