Gives you the breeder the EXACT TIME to mate your bitch to within a FEW HOURS Providing IMMEDIATE RESULTS of when to mate 'ON THE SPOT'.
Avoid: Expensive Wasted Stud Fees - Unnecessary Blood Tests - High Vet Bills
Excessive Time Wastage - Effort - Fuel Costs
In travelling to the Stud Dog for multiple or repeat matings.
As well as the stress on yourself, your bitch and the stud dog in trying to
achieve a mating
when the 'timing is incorrect' especially if the dogs are not experienced.
In organising a successful animal breeding programme, it is essential to detect the precise moment of ovulation, which is of utmost importance to determine the optimum time to serve the bitch, whether this is day 7, 9, 16, 21, 26 or even later !!!
Seemingly bitches being 'ready' at days 11 or 12 are a rarity nowadays !!!
At a recent seminar a breeder told us that she mated her bitch on day 32
as determined by the ovulation detector and achieved a litter !!!
In the course of animal physiology research and in particular the changes in the sexual organs during the oestrus cycle, scientists have established a correlation between the changes occurring in the ovaries and in the electrical resistance of the vaginal mucus,
also determining that the closer to ovulation, the more the change in electrical resistance.
- One of the most important elements in animal reproduction is the proper and accurate timing for the detection of oestrus.
- The Draminski Ovulation Detector indicates oestrus by monitoring the changes
in electrical resistance of the vaginal mucus.
- The unit thus accurately determines the optimum time to mate your bitch.
- It is vitally important in a successful breeding program to determine the most fertile moment to mate your bitch.
- The detector is a small, portable unit powered by a standard 9 volt battery.
Directions for use:
When the bitch is in season, a considerable amount of mucus builds up around the
neck of the cervix, which undergoes considerable chemical and hormonal changes.
This results in a marked change in the electrical resistance of the mucus, as the bitch
goes through her oestrus cycle.
It is this change that is measured, by inserting the probe into the vagina and taking
a direct reading from the LCD in seconds.
Readings should be taken throughout the oestrus period.
Variations to the concentrations of estradiol 17ß and progesterone result in changes
in the electrical resistance of the mucus.
Interpreting the results:
The value of the readings will change as the bitch goes through her season.
Readings will continue to rise and reach a maximum, which is when the lutenising hormone is released naturally by the body, triggering ovulation to occur.
The best time for mating the bitch is thus identified as 24 hours AFTER the maximum figure is recorded on the LCD.

Electronic Ovulation Detector
Plastic carrying and storage case
Instruction manual & guarantee
The Draminski Ovulation Detector is supplied with 2 Years warranty.
We are dog breeders ourselves and came across the unit whilst in Europe and quite frankly we were amazed at the simplicity of use, the accuracy of the readings and more importantly the amazing results obtained and successes achieved in seemingly every breed of dog, ranging from the toys through to the giant breeds.
We have heard back from so many, many satisfied breeders, who have now produced successful litters, whereas before they had miss after miss, more and more wasted money, increased stress on their bitches, or in some cases not even been able to get a mating !!!
If you wish to talk to us further, we will be very happy to answer any queries.
Therefore the final answer to the obvious question is:
A SELECTION OF TESTIMONIALS
We run a successful Breeding & Show Kennels and saw the unit whilst in our friend's kennels in Belgium.
Our first reaction was: WHAT WAS IT ? Followed by: WELL DOES IT WORK ?
Well the answer to your question is: YES IT DOES WORK !!!
From: Papillons, Havanese & Bulldogs to Old English Sheepdogs, Bassets & Rottweilers, etc., etc…..
|I must write to thank you for the |
Ovulation Detector, it is a real success. Normally technical things put me right off, but this is so easy to use. Bullies are so difficult to get into whelp. I know so many people that have had success.
So once again, many thanks for this wonderful aid to breeding
Dorothy Stephenson - WALDOR Bulldogs
|I have bitches that ovulate early & 'go over' very quickly, which the detector showed me.|
I have been trying time and again to get them into pup and failed, but with the unit, I have now succeeded and achieved fantastic litters. I have recommended you to so many people.
Dawn Bliss - ELVISTIME Papillons
|5 Year old Bulldog. Missed two previous seasons, both with apparently 'normal' matings. This time used the Draminski Ovulation Detector and got 6 puppies !!!|
R. D. Jones - Shih Tzus, Bulldogs
& French Bulldogs.
|Have talked to Mrs Fry at the Amantra Kennels and she says: It hasn't missed |
Marj Garritson - King Charles Spaniels
|Our bitches were being mated previously |
and produced NOTHING or small litters of
1,2 or 3. Mated quite late as shown by the unit and produced a litter of 12 !!! The next bitch produced 10 after miss after miss before.
Mrs Debbie. Newman - WOFERLOW
|We now use the Ovulation Detector as|
part of our boarding kennels business. Bitches boarded & tested daily until ovulation occurs Success rate has been very good !!!
Linda Major - LINJOR Retrievers.
Previously spent £2500 on testing with no pups at all !!! One Bulldog bitch missed 9 times in a row and the other bitch (with a double entry to the cervix) missed 6 times in a row, but with the Draminski Ovulation Detector I got a litter of 5 and 4 at the first attempt !!! It is easy to use and the results are absolutely astonishing after so much wasted time, and money before. I have already started telling everyone about it.
Mr Wood - IROKO Bulldogs.
I think the ovulator is the best thing ever made, as before I purchased this unit, we had tried and tried mating 2 bitches and every time they didn't catch. I wasted nearly 2 years in keeping trying to mate them. So when I purchased the unit, we found they were not ovulating properly due to fertility problems. Since then, my other two bitches have been tested and mated as indicated . One bitch produced 11 pups and the other
5 pups. I would recommend the ovulator to anybody. It was well worth the money.
Mrs H. Rickards - JAGGERHOF Rottweilers.
I don't have any problems with my bitches getting in whelp anymore coz I use the Draminski Ovulation Detector - Just wish you could find something as reliable that
would show me which colours my dogs are carrying LOL.
Mandy Rollinson ~ SHELLKIRMA Tailed Schipperkes
I bought my Draminski from someone who was giving up breeding. I decided it would be a better long-term investment than getting blood tests at the vets. The first Lhasa bitch I tried it on has silent seasons and never swells much. The Draminski indicated she was ready way before I would have expected her to be ready and I did wonder if I was not using it correctly. However acting upon the readings, I walked into the stud dog's house and he mated her within a few minutes. She had 5 pups. The second time of use, on an Irish Wolfhound, I was also spot on when I visited the stud dog.
It is so much easier for myself, my bitches and the stud dog owners if I can be sure of the right day for mating. It saves money on petrol, saves valuable time and also relieves us all from the stress of worrying about not missing ovulation or whether the bitch is ready or gone over. Worth its weight in gold !!!
Jane Paradise ~ SHARDLOW
We purchased our Draminski just over a year ago and it has been accurate everytime. As we offer free returns on our matings, anything that our boys had previously missed to, we had back to board and test AND THEY ALL CAUGHT !!! We were very thrilled with our Ronnies 11 babies !!! In Bulldogdom, we all love our Draminski's, all our mates already have one and are very pleased with it. Thanks for all your help.
Mel & Malcolm ~ KOFYN Bulldogs.
Hello from a half-dead breeder ~ The Havanese litter came …….. ALL 9 OF THEM !!! Thanks for all your help. (She was mated on day 8 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
This is a World Record for the breed.
Regina Tolosa ~ www.melenbri.com
After 3 years of mating and no puppies, I had to find out what the problem was, so I purchased an ovulator and found the reason !!! I normally take my bitch for a swab on the 11th day of her season, but according to the readings, she was ovulating on day 9. I was completely missing the time of ovulation. As a result of using the unit, my bitch on her 'LAST CHANCE' produced 8 puppies and another bitch produced 10 puppies !!!
Linda Pierson ~ KILTONDALE Bearded Collies
The detector determines the PRECISE MOMENT that the luteinising hormone
is released naturally by the bitch, which is what triggers ovulation to occur
and thus the OPTIMUM TIME to serve the bitch.
MEASURING WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING
NOT WHAT YOU THINK IS HAPPENING !!!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (F.A.Q's)
Frequently Asked Questions/Comments
Q: How does it work - is it temperature?
A: No it measures electrical resistance of the vaginal mucus located near the cervix.
Q: How accurate is it?
A: Very accurate and consistent when operated correctly.
Q: Can it hurt my bitch?
A: No unless you are very heavy handed and do not take obvious care ~ compare
the size of the probe (length & diameter) to the penis of the dog (even in toy breeds).
It is approximately 5 inches long and less than the diameter of a pencil !!!
Q: Does it really work?
A: Yes it works extremely well and we have breeders who have now achieved good
size litters, whereas before sometimes they couldn't even get matings !!!
Q: I can only get the probe in about 1 inch.
A: This is because the angle of insertion is incorrect and you are trying to insert parallel to the spine as opposed to following the angle of the vaginal vestibule. Mimic the angle of entry of the stud dog as he enters from underneath at approx 25 to 45 degrees. In some bitches the angle of the vaginal passage is very steep and seemingly almost vertical.
Sometimes early on in the season, a few bitches may be somewhat dry. Moisten the probe with water, part the vulval lips and gently push the probe into the vulva. If the bitch constricts, hold the unit in place and do not push anymore until she relaxes, at which time you resume gentle pressure and the probe will slip into the passage easily. Do not use a lubricant such as KY jelly or Vaseline as this will adversely affect the readings obtained
Q: All the readings are low (wont get above 150 or 200 etc) - Why?
A: Usually it is because the probe is not inserted far enough into the bitch (ie: just dipped inside the vulva) and does not reach the actual mucus which is what the unit is looking to measure. Also salt from the urine can depress the readings. Or of course YOUR BITCH IS NOT IN SEASON !!!
Q: How does one know when the probe is in the right place?
A: The probe should be inserted until a slight resistance is felt, which is when the probe just reaches the neck of the cervix. This is approx 3/5ths of its length. (ie: approx 3 ins in the bitch and 2 ins out showing). At this position the probe tip is positioned within the area containing the maximum amount of mucus to thus obtain accurate and consistent readings. This position is adjusted slightly relative to the size of the bitch. Also some bitches are very dilated early in the cycle with little or no resistance being felt. However the 3/5ths positioning still applies.
Q: How often do readings have to be taken?
A: It is best to take them daily at regular times of the day if possible. When the readings start to rise, because the procedure is so quick and simple, it is wise to take 2, 3 or 4 readings a day to accurately pinpoint the peak figure and thereby accurately determine the optimum time to mate.
Q: Why is there a difference between morning and evening readings?
A: There is no 'best time' to take readings, however, we have noticed that the readings can differ in some bitches, if taken in the morning and at suppertime. We suggest that you plot a graph or note the readings separately for both morning and evening readings and although the readings may differ for some bitches, the profile trace is the same, which is what matters to obtain the peak readings.
Q: What is the best time to take the readings?
A: Take regular readings from the very first moment that you notice your bitch coming into season. You do not need to take readings from day one, although it is better because you get a complete 'picture' of the manner in which the bitch changes through her cycle.
Q: How long should the probe be left in for?
A: Insert the probe and let it attain normal body temperature of the bitch, which generally only takes a few moments. After the readings stabilise on the detector, which only takes a couple of seconds and the values noted, the probe is then taken
out of the bitch.
Q: How quickly does the reading stabilise?
A: The readings stabilise on the detector LCD in approximately 2 to 3 seconds.
Q: What is the probe made of and can it easily snap?
A: No ~ The probe is made of a very high quality special polyamide plastic which is non-porous, very durable and long lasting and is certificated by the food industry.
Q: I get random high readings - why?
A: Usually it is because the probe is inserted too far. (ie: the whole length of the probe is inserted up to the body of the instrument). Thus often going past the cervix area and past the mucus, usually then producing random high readings.
Q: How do tell the false peak from the real peak?
A: The false peak can be just a small rise & fall or the rise can be quite significant, however regardless of the value, it only occurs around day 3/4/5 of the season.
Q: What should the maximum/peak reading be?
A: Some bitches peak reading may be 400, whereas others maybe 600, 750 or in excess of 1000. The key point to remember is that you are looking for the profile trace, peak and subsequent fall as opposed to the actual value of the reading.
Q: My bitch did not peak at 600, I kept waiting for 600 and missed her !!!
A: The manual tells you that the peak value may be higher or lower than the example shown of a 600 peak figure. (Look for the peak followed by the fall).
Q: My bitch still has a red blood discharge, but unit tells me to mate?
A: Trust the unit ~ It is indicating what is really happening to your bitch with both chemical changes and changes in hormonal activity, as opposed to the external signs shown by the bitch.
Q: Timings of when to mate - early / middle / late?
A: Manufacturers state that the optimum time to mate is within 24 hours after the peak and at the latest 48 hours.
Q: Can lubricant be used to help insert it?
A: Lubricant will adversely affect the value of the readings obtained.
Q: Should the battery be taken out when not in use?
A: No ~ The battery is only removed and replaced when it is exhausted.
Q: How can you rotate the probe whilst pressing the button?
A: You rotate the unit and AFTER a full rotation ~ THEN the button is pressed.
Q: How do you clean the unit?
A: Hibiscrub is the best or alternatively a very weak solution of Dettox or Savlon.
Wipe the probe surfaces with the solution and then rinse thoroughly with water,
dry and replace in storage box.
Q: Do bitches mind the procedure?
A: All bitches are different in that some bitches accept the probe instantly without any problems the first time it is used, some are puzzled and some are concerned, much in the same way as the reaction of a bitch to a stud dog when mating. The only problem is when trying to insert the probe at the 'wrong' angle.
Q: Can you use it on bitches that are not in season?
A: Yes ~ However you may find that the vulva could be a trifle dry and thus make it less easy to insert the probe. Also please note that the value of the readings will stay low as the hormonal activity within the mucus is not significantly altering.
Q: What will happen to the readings once the bitch has ovulated?
A: The peak figure indicates when the luteinising hormone is released, triggering ovulation to occur. After which time the value of the readings decrease steadily in a relatively short space of time and finally reach an approximate plateau figure at which they remain.
Q: Can I continue using it after mating?
A: Yes ~ it should have no detrimental effect.
Q: Can the bitch go through the season without ovulating?
A: Bitches sometimes display 'standard expected behavioural signs' and show external signs such as blood discharge, vulval swelling, etc., but are not seemingly having what could be considered a 'normal' ovulatory season. The value of the readings are often seen as staying between 200 and 250.
Q: How will I know when the peak is reached?
A: By taking readings regularly, when the values are increasing at 2, 3 or 4 times a day, until a steady consistent maximum peak figure is obtained.
Q: Do different diets cause different readings?
A: We are currently researching this and believe that diet does affect the readings. However, once again it is not the actual value of the readings that is important but the profile trace that is obtained, to determine the peak figure.
Q: Why do I get a different reading when I push the button again without moving the probe?
A: Because the electrical potential of the mucus initially tested has been discharged.
It is imperative to rotate the unit once again to attain fresh mucus on the probe and thereby obtaining a further consistent reading.
Q: How will you know when there is a low battery?
A: On the LCD screen on the unit, a message will appear showing: LO BAT.
Q: Can I undertake the procedure alone?
A: Yes ~ but in the same manner as with mating, another person to assist to reassure the bitch and hold her steady whilst the testing is done is very helpful and ensures the procedure is carried out in a calm and steady manner.
Q: How long is the unit guaranteed for?
A: The unit is guaranteed for Two Years.
Q: Can it be used on other animals - cattle, sheep, pigs, horses, goats?
A: Yes ~ The procedure is exactly the same, however alternative detectors are made with sizes relevant to other species.
Q: How long does unit last?
A: Difficult to say accurately, but with care, it could last a lifetime.
