Vaginal Insemination: This is where semen is placed directly into the bitch's vaginal canal just outside of the opening into the uterus, at the cervix. Usually this type of insemination is performed using fresh semen which has just been collected minutes prior from the stud dog or chilled semen shipped in overnight after collecting the stud dog from a distant location.
The procedure is done using an insemination tube gently inserted into the vaginal canal. The female's hind legs are then elevated to help the semen move forward to the opening into the uterus with the aid of gravity.
ONLY fresh or chilled semen (not frozen) can be put in vaginally.
Requirements for vaginal insemination
Copy of most recent Brucellosis test results for BOTH stud dog and bitch (if last test was run more than 1 year ago, we will require one be run in house at time of collection)
Both animals require a reproduction exam by Animal Hospital of Woodstock within the past year
Copy of progesterone test confirming ovulation (can be run in-clinic if needed)
On the day of insemination, if you are bringing in your bitch (you are the owner) and the stud dog owner is bringing in the stud dog for collection, there is no paperwork required.
