Q. I have collected a sperm sample and am ready to give it a try. How are you supposed to keep the sperm fresh? Freezer or refridgerator?
Hi Cindy,

Have you ever artificially inseminated your dogs? Can you please answer a question for me. How long is 6-10 cm? I have collected a sperm sample and am ready to give it a try. How are you supposed to keep the sperm fresh? Freezer or refridgerator? Please answer asap. Thanks so much for your time.

Sincerely,
Brenda

A. You need to get a ruler to see how long 6-10 cm is. We have done AIs hundreds of times. We only use FRESH semen here, it’s used IMMEDIATELY after collection.

Do you have our AI video? You don’t collect the semen and then save it.
You need to use it immediately or all the sperm will die. You also need to make sure you have the right kind of tools to collect and insert the semen in the female. http://leerburg.com/127.htm Here is the link to our video.

The only successful way to use chilled or frozen semen is to go to a vet and have a reproduction specialist deal with the process. There are special extenders and additives they use to preserve the semen and then they have a special freezing or chilling process.

I have been doing artificial inseminations on my own dogs since the late 1980s, I don't know how many times I have done an AI but certainly between 250 to 300 times. I currently have a success rate of well over 90%. Our 1 hour DVD shows how we collect a stud dog an immediately inseminate one of our females at our kennel.

Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.
