I'm planning in doing a breeding in germany and i have to do a Progesterone and bacterial test.
Has i'm not sure if it's done the same way in my country, i would like to know if anybody here knows exactly what are the bacterial tests used in Germany?
Thank you

when going to a male in germany we have not had to do bacterial tests

In North America, the female is usually tested for brucellosis before breeding (contagious abortion). That's the only bacterial test I'm aware of.

Male must be tested as well.....bangs goes both ways, not just from the female.

mostly for brucellosis
but not all owners of a stud ask for it

So, should the female be tested after every breeding as well? Is this a doggie VD?

Temple: mostly for brucellosis
but not all owners of a stud ask for it

It's not about the stud dog owner, it's for the health safety of female being bred to him .. and any time I get a stud dog, I have him tested before I use him..... undetected bangs or brucellosis well destroy a kennel because it's basically incurrable and contageous to humans causing undulent fever. Nothing to take lightly.

Sheryl, the test is done before breeding to avoid a stud dog from getting infected by a female in case she is positive. And likewise, the stud should be tested to protect the health of the female. After breeding is too late.

A dog can get Brucellosis by contact with urine of infected dog, or fluid during whelping of infected female...human can get the disease same way...
Only dog I ever knew with brucellosis got from afterbirth from an infected cow.

No, it is a zoonosis - a disease that can affect humans as well as animals. There are 4 different strains of it, each with its own host animal: canine, bovine (cows), sheep/goats and pigs. Symptoms include an undulating fever, gastrointestinal symptoms, night sweats, headaches and joint pain. Although it can be spread sexually in animals, humans get infected by eating unpasteurized cheese and milk, or being exposed to infected animals when slaughtering or butchering them. Veterinarians frequently got infected in the old days before it was common to wear a full length arm glove when assisting with difficult births in cattle.

Breeding animals should be tested BEFORE breeding. If this is done, there is no need to test after breeding. That's like closing the barn door after the horse is out!

Sunsilver  Brucellos is a zoonotic disease.  

There are other websites hope this one helps Snusjunkie .
