The Vcheck Canine Progesterone is an in vitro diagnostic test kit for the quantitative measurement of progesterone concentration in canine serum. Progesterone is a steroid hormone produced primarily by the corpora luteum. Progesterone levels begin to rise around the time of LH (Luteinizing Hormone) surge. Thus, the production of progesterone starts prior to ovulation at the end of proestrus and reaches increased levels at the time of ovulation. The measurement of progesterone can be used to determine optimal breeding dates, predict parturition dates or time a Cesarean section and detect reproductive disorders. This test kit is designed to be used only by veterinarians.
