in vitro fertilisation?

i hope it's the right translation ^^

does anybode have any experiences with in vitro fertilisation?

i know this from horse breeding, and it's really hard for me to find a really good stud dog for my girl "a million kisses of the little pixies" ...

she'll be on heat next year (february/march) and i was thinking abut in vitro fertilisation, maybi i could find a good stud dog in another country than germany ;)

hope there's anybody with any experiences...

Do you mean artificial insemination? That is where the sperm is extracted, frozen and taken to a bitch. I dont think IVF is possible in dogs. (Yet!)

yes :D

that's what I mean! :D


sometimes it's a bit hard with the translation ;)

I have no experience of it in dogs, but I have seen some UK Chi websites that offer frozen semen, so definitely worth looking into.

could you send me the links to those websites by private message?

that would be great!

Frozen semen is routine here in the USA. Just have to find a reproductive specialist vet, many of them are at vet schools. We had a frenchie bitch inseminated years ago with frozen semen from a dog in another state. It didn't take unfortunately. She had multiple vaginal smears to check for optimum fertilization timing and then the dog was collected and it was flash frozen and overnighted to our vet. Our vet thawed it, checked under a microscope for motility and then inseminated our girl with a pipette. She was inseminated twice, once more the next day. We sonogrammed later, but no puppies which was a disappointment, considering how expensive and time consuming it was.

Not sure how it works in other countries, but check with the chihuahua national club in the country you are looking at and then get referrals to chi breeders who are familiar with semen collection.
