ICSB Mobile Mid Coast Mobile as our name insunates services the Mid-Atlantic region, covering Delaware, New Jersey, Most of Pennsylvania, Parts of New York, Most of Maryland, and Most of Virginia areas.
We travel to dog shows, events, and clinics to enable stud dog owners the ability to have their males collected and frozen at their convenience.
The Advantages of Frozen Semen are many including but not limited to allowing a great stud dog to be used long after he is no longer available.
The fees involved are based on personal time, lab expenses, and overhead at each ICSB center. Each ICSB center has the capability of collecting, evaluating, freezing, storing, and shipping for frozen semen. Most can also offer artificially inseminate frozen and or fresh extended canine semen as you need.
How does the collection and freezing process work?
The first step in the process is the collection process. This is generally done manually either with or without a teaser female present. We have had great success with many dogs regardless of breed without a teaser present. There are some dogs and some breeds that do preform better with a teaser present. If you have a dog and feel it will require a teaser it is best that you bring or find a teaser to use with your dog as I do not always travel with a bitch in heat with me. If we attempt to get a collection with or without a teaser and are unable to get one you will not be charged. Also if we do get a collection and it does not provide enough numbers of semen or the semen is not of quality for freezing you will only be charged a semen evaluation fee. The number of breeding's we are able to freeze depends on the number of viable sperm the dog produces. Based on years of ICSB research each dog depending on size and breed requires a certain number of sperm cells per breeding. Based on these numbers we come up with the number of breeding's or as we refer to a breeding as a vial we get from each collection. The normal medium size stud dog produces 4 or more vials per collection. If the stud dog produces more than 4 vials and you wish to keep more than 4 vials than you may choose to do so. We will not package any vials with less than the number of sperm required for at least one Breeding. If the dog owner chooses to just keep the 4 vials than we do not throw out the sperm we just divide it up between the 4 vials.
What do you need to bring with you to have your dog collected??
1. We need your dogs AKC or Registry information if applicable. An actual copy of the original is preferred.
2. Signed permission by the owner and or all co-owners that you have permission to have the dog collected. (We will keep this for our files) This is necessary on any dog that you do not own or a dog that is co-owned by multiple people. This is an AKC requirement in order to use frozen semen.
3. If dog is registered by the AKC or UKC a dna profile will be required prior to you being able to use the frozen semen. If you do not already have a dna profile on your male we can do one at the time of collection. o sed rutrum. Etiam varius mauris vel leo ullamcorper, at semper tortor consequat.
