Advantages of Using Frozen Semen for Canine Reproduction
There are many reasons to consider freezing semen for the purpose of canine reproduction. Some of the benefits of doing so include:
- Using frozen semen provides the assurance that the genetic pool is preserved in the event that the dog becomes incapacitated or dies.
- Frozen semen increases the marketing potential internationally. There are few places that semen cannot be shipped in three days. Present shipping container technology will keep semen frozen for at least 21 days without fear of premature thaw.
- It allows for less time and expense spent on travel for the female.
- It also affords the stud time on the show circuit while still being used for reproduction.
- The quality of the semen is evaluated before insemination.
- In most instances, it allows more than one breeding per ejaculation. This allows studs to be proven quicker and makes more semen available.
- Frozen semen allows positive control of infectious disease.
- Frozen semen also allows indefinite storage of genetic material. To use it properly, one must prepare long in advance prior to the date of breeding to ensure the female is properly evaluated and a trained reproductive veterinarian is available to time and inseminate the female.
