If an artificial insemination is a part of your breeding plan Rose City Veterinary Hospital has the tools and experience to facilitate your bitches reproductive needs. The use of fresh, fresh chilled and frozen semen can be used in all artificial inseminations done at Rose City Veterinary Hospital.
Surgical Insemination is an outpatient procedure. This procedure is recommended for bitches five years of age and older, also for bitches who have previously failed to conceive. During this procedure a small abdominal incision is made and the semen is implanted directly into the uterine horn. This allows the doctor the opportunity to examine the uterus for any abnormalities. We strongly recommend surgical inseminations for frozen semen breedings.
Trans-Cervical Insemination is an outpatient procedure. This procedure is done with an endoscopic camera and requires no anesthesia or sedation for cooperative bitches. The semen is inserted through the cervix opening and into the uterine body. This procedure is the most commonly used at our hospital.
Vaginal Insemination is also an outpatient procedure. This procedure is done with a silicone tube; an inflatable cuff at the end simulates a natural tie. This insemination requires no anesthesia or sedation for cooperative bitches. This procedure places semen directly into the vaginal canal. This is recommended for high quality fresh or fresh chilled semen.
