High quality K9 fertility with an Amazing Service

Please Note:

As of June 2023, Intravaginal Artificial Insemination has been re-evaluated and has now been deemed an act of veterinary surgery and can only be performed by a vet. In light of this we can no longer offer this as a service. We are however offering a supervised mating service to aid your dogs in the mating naturally.

Rest assured we are doing everything we can to get this resolved, we have contacted DEFRA and the RCVS regarding a special course for people already qualified to carry out this procedure and we are awaiting the outcome. It is extremely frustrating for us that are qualified to do this job and for people who want to breed their dog in a safe and stress free way. Unfortunately it does only seem to be targeted at dogs and not any other animal group which is obviously disappointing to all involved in the responsible breeding of healthy dogs.

If you are unsure about anything or need some advice on the best way to go moving forward then please do not hesitate to give us a call and we’ll be happy to assist you further.

Below is a snippet from the RCVS website.

***At its May 2023 meeting the Standards Committee agreed the following guidance on the topic of canine intravaginal AI, confirming a limitation on who is legally entitled to undertake the procedure:

Intravaginal artificial insemination of bitches is now an act of veterinary surgery which should only be undertaken by a veterinary surgeon or a professional with a relevant exemption, such as a registered veterinary nurse under direction.
As there is no specific exemption order allowing lay people to undertake this procedure, they are currently legally prohibited from doing so regardless of training or qualifications.
Note that canine transcervical artificial insemination is also an act of veterinary surgery subject to the same restrictions, although the invasive nature of this procedures means that it should not be delegated to registered veterinary nurses. Canine surgical artificial insemination is prohibited by UK animal welfare legislation.***

What are the benefits of Mating a dog by A.I?
  • Decreased stress levels for the dogs as they don’t have to experience any possible stress caused by a natural mating.
  • Breeders can use AI to enhance the genetics and overall health of their kennel.
  • Worldwide access of semen produced by healthy champion dogs that may not be available close by.
  • Allows for semen to be evaluated for fertility and health.
  • Prevents any possibility of sexually transmitted diseases.
  • Frozen semen can be stored for long periods and stay alive.
So what is artificial insemination?
Canine reproduction, particularly K9 A.I, has come a long way in the last 20 to 30 years.
Back then most dog breeding took place by natural mating and there was a high chance that it would not be successful and had a risk of passing on sexually transmitted diseases.
Now, with advances in reproductive technology and our greater understanding of canine reproduction, we’ve managed to better our chances of a successful mating whilst keeping our dogs safe from diseases.
Advancements in the way we store, chill and freeze semen, and the methods used for insemination have totally changed the way we mate our dogs for the future.
Canine artificial insemination allows breeders the opportunity to collect semen from dogs from anywhere in the world.
It allows the breeder to breed a bitch that may not be able to mate naturally for medical reasons.
Canine A.I has the advantages of being less stressful for the bitch and allows the breeder the chance to plan the procedure for the best results possible in a safe and controlled environment.
The benefits of artificial insemination When to contact your vet.
During her pregnancy, if your bitch looks or acts unwell you should always contact your vet immediately, never contact your ultrasound scanner as we are not vets!
What is Pyometra?
Pyometra is a secondary infection that occurs as a result of hormonal changes in the female’s reproductive tract.
Following oestrus (heat), the hormone progesterone remains elevated for up to two months and causes the lining of the uterus to thicken in preparation for pregnancy.
When pregnancy does not occur for several consecutive oestrus cycles, the uterine lining continues to increase in thickness until cysts form within the uterine tissues (a condition called cystic endometrial hyperplasia).
The thickened, cystic lining secretes fluids that create an ideal environment for bacterial growth.
In addition,
Muscles of the uterus cannot contract properly either due to thickening of the uterine wall or the high levels of the hormone progesterone.
This means that bacteria that enters the uterus and fluids that have accumulated cannot be expelled.
During oestrus, white blood cells, which would normally protect against infection by eliminating bacteria, are inhibited from entering the uterus.
This normal occurrence allows sperm to safely enter the female’s reproductive tract without being damaged or destroyed by these immune system cells.
The combination of these three factors can often lead to life threatening infection

For the best chances of a successful mating by any method relies upon mating at the optimum time of your girls heat cycle and a good way to determine this is by performing Cytology Ovulation Testing.

By doing this a mating can be done closer to the true ovulation period. This is especially essential for using chilled and frozen semen for insemination. This is why we stress the use of Ovulation Testing before every mating
