Comparison of five extenders for canine semen freezing
Semen quality is a constant concern for dog owners. Your dog may have achieved show or performance goals, at which time it is appropriate to collect and freeze his semen for future litters of champions. Unfortunately many factors can adversely affect semen quality in the dog, including age, infections, diet, medications, environmental factors, and unrelated health conditions. Most dogs experience a decline in sperm production with age. We many times get a 10 or 12 year old dog whose owner wants to have collected and frozen.
Comparison of five extenders for canine semen freezing. Semen was collected from six stud dogs to compare five extenders in the semen freezing process. Each ejaculate was divided in five parts and added to tris-fructose-citric acid, glicine, lactose, skim milk and tris-fructose-citrate extenders. The diluted semen with the cryoprotectant was maintained for a further 60 minutes in refrigeration to equilibrate the spermatozoa in the glycerol and packaged in 0.
Advice Before Purchasing and Importing Frozen Semen From Overseas Incorporating overseas genetics into your breeding program can be exciting and rewarding, but it is a complex process and can be expensive. There are 3 fundamental factors that determine the success of artificial insemination with frozen semen. We can control and optimise points one and two, but not point three.
