Why you need to be testing Cortisol...
Cortisol testing in dogs is primarily done to assess the dog's stress levels and overall well-being. Cortisol is a hormone that is released in response to stress, and elevated or abnormal cortisol levels can indicate various health issues or behavioral problems. Here are a few reasons why dog breeders might consider testing cortisol levels:
Health Evaluation: Cortisol testing can provide valuable insights into a dog's overall health. Abnormal cortisol levels may indicate underlying medical conditions such as Cushing's syndrome (hyperadrenocorticism) or Addison's disease (hypoadrenocorticism). These conditions can impact a dog's well-being and reproductive capabilities, which is crucial for breeders to know.
Breeding Suitability: When assessing breeding dogs, it's important to evaluate their temperament and stress response. Dogs with chronically high cortisol levels may be more prone to anxiety, fear, or aggression, which can be inherited by their offspring. Breeders want to ensure they are breeding dogs with sound temperaments, and cortisol testing can help identify individuals that may pass on undesirable traits.
Pregnancy Monitoring: During pregnancy, a bitch's cortisol levels can affect her own health as well as the developing puppies. Elevated cortisol levels can contribute to complications such as poor fetal development, premature birth, or reduced litter size. Monitoring cortisol levels throughout pregnancy allows breeders to intervene if necessary and take appropriate measures to ensure the well-being of both the mother and the puppies.
Stress Assessment: Breeders are responsible for the welfare of their dogs, and cortisol testing can help evaluate the stress levels experienced by individual dogs. High or prolonged stress can negatively impact a dog's overall health, immune system, and reproductive function. By identifying dogs with abnormal cortisol levels, breeders can make necessary adjustments to their management, environment, or breeding program to reduce stress and improve the well-being of their dogs.
It's worth noting that cortisol testing should be done under the guidance of a veterinarian or veterinary endocrinologist who can interpret the results and provide appropriate recommendations based on the specific circumstances.
