Semen Collection, Freezing and Storing

Why would you want to freeze a dog’s semen?
  • To export semen to other breeders around the world
  • To enable line breeding
  • As an insurance policy that you can call on if your dog is injured or if semen quality declines due to illness or old age
  • If stud dog is required to mate a number of bitches in a short period of time
How does it work?

Southview ReproVets are experts in freezing canine semen and there are puppies around the world from semen processed here.

  • Semen is frozen in a pelleted form which are easier for inseminators
  • Stored in cryovials in liquid nitrogen tanks
  • Specialised extenders and techniques yield excellent quality semen
  • During processing one frozen pellet is thawed to determine how many breeding units
    (inseminations) from each extraction
  •  2-4 breeding units per extraction depending on semen quality
  • The semen can be stored indefinitely without deterioration
