ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION
 

So where are we in the UK?

"Well the answer is still quite a long way behind the Americans and some top European specialists like Catharina Linde Forsberg in Sweden. But there are some really eminent Vets in the UK field – Angelika von Heimandahl in Cambridge, Hector Heathcote in Surrey and Prof Gary England in Nottingham."

 

"We know that in a natural mating, or mating with fresh semen , the semen can last 7 days or so. Bitches may ovulate over 2 – 3 days. This range of timing means if you don’t hit all the eggs being released when you mate your bitch, semen is still viable for several days to “mop up” the later eggs and lead to a positive pregnancy.

Chilled semen , such as you may send to a bitch owner based in Europe, will last for approximately 4 days. Again there is some cross over here for sperm to meet eggs, but success becomes improved if semen is placed through cervix into uterus.

When frozen semen is used we are dealing with a much tighter window for success – frozen semen will only last 12 hours when thawed. Timing for AI is therefore critical and we also need to minimize any barriers to success by placing the semen into the uterus, most commonly through a TCI technique . Some operators in recent studies report a greater than 75% success with frozen semen TCI methods these days."
