About the parameter

Progesterone (P4) is an androgen produced by the corpus luteum of bitches. Normally present in low doses until ovulation, levels of progesterone start to climb around the time of the LH (luteinizing hormone) peak. Thus, the production of progesterone by the follicle begins prior to ovulation at the end of proestrus and reaches increased levels in peripheral blood plasma at the time of ovulation.

Classic subjective indicators (vaginal discharge/bleeding, acceptance of males) are hardly reliable in determining the current fertility. In addition, approximately one third of bitches have a variable fertile period. The measurement of canine progesterone is useful in evaluating the status of ovarian and liver functions and it enables accurately pinpointing the ideal fertility period.

Eurolyser’s canine Progesterone VET test kit was specifically designed for veterinarians and dog breeders, who want to monitor progesterone levels in female dogs in order to determine the perfect time to breed.



This is a homogenous, immunoturbidimetric test.

Sample material

A sample of 40 µl serum or li-hep plasma is needed.

Test duration

The test duration is under 8 minutes.

Measurement range

When using a 40 µl pipette: 1.2 – 8.0 ng/ml (3.8 – 25.4 nmol/l)
When using a 5 µl pipette: 6.0 – 20.0 ng/ml (19.1 – 63.6 nmol/l)
