Default Artificial Insemination Question

Well, really more like a friend of mine has an opportunity with one of her dogs and she asked if I knew anyone who had any experience with it or knew anything about it. I do not but was curious if anyone on the board does.

Since I know nothing about it I don't even know what questions to ask other than some good resources for her

Ive researched it. What are you wondering? A repro vet would be a huge help.

A good repro vet is invaluable. Is she going with frozen or fresh collected? If frozen, she should have her dog surgically inseminated. In the words of our repro vet (the best in the west), "You might as well throw it down the drain otherwise."

Since she got Kaia pregnant with 9 puppies on 10 year old semen that was only 30% viable AND saved my dog's life, I'm going with what she says.

i know nothing of it, other than one of my dogs is a pupsicle from a stud that died in January of 1998 and the repro vet they used was pretty good. I could get you the contact for them if you'd like, but other than that i know nothing

Random question, what's the likely hood that semen could be shipped half way around the world and still be viable?

I'm guessing it's as reliable as your carrier service? Also, expensive! I have a girlfriend who's done frozen several times for breeding her girls and pulling from her male, $$$$.

Yeah the pup I'm bringing home next month was born from semen frozen in the 90s...good repro vets are key. SaraB, the vet they used is in the Twin Cities area IIRC.

And agree w/ regard to carrier service. We shipped in cooled semen from all over for the horses and had good success as long as the vet was on top of monitoring ovulation, etc., and the semen was handled well. Shipping in extreme weather conditions never seemed to work as well but whether the extreme weather was affecting the mare, the semen, or both...
