Transcervical Implantation

  • This method utilises specialized equipment and in most cases does not require any anesthetics or sedatives, very rarely a light sedative may be required.
  • The bitch stands on a tailor made table with fastening levels at the chest and waist minimizing ability to move, the bitch also has a tether for the collar to be secured to.
  • The bitch remains secured to the table with someone standing at her head for moral support and an ear scratch when needed.
  • Once steadily in place, a scope (diameter of approximately 1.5cm) is passed into the vaginal tract. The passing of the scope is viewed by television screen, once the cervix is located on the viewing screen a specialized catheter is passed the through the length of the scope into the narrow opening of the cervix into the uterus.
  • Once the catheter is passed into the uterus the semen is then injected slowly through the catheter. (Using this method the semen is also deposited directly into the uterus itself)
  • The catheter and scope are then gently removed and the procedure is complete.
  • Recovery time: Nil unless sedation is required.
