We now offer mass spectrometry measurement of progesterone/DHP ratios for determination of placental support of pregnancy, and as evidence for the safe removal of pregnant mares from progesterone supplementation. Please see complete information and submission form.

Feline/Canine anti-Mullerian hormone  (Spaychek/AMH) testing is currently available. Testing with Spaychek from Preventia Diagnostics is a safe, humane and cost effective alternative to surgical exploration to determine spay status . Please see more information under anti-Mullerian Homone Testing. The test may be submitted using our sample submission form.
