Chilled Semen

Chilled or cooled semen is fresh semen with an extender added that preserves the semen to hold for up to 14 days at 5-10 degrees Celsius (stored in refrigerator NOT freezer). Chilled semen is an ideal solution to save time and travel to a stud dog. Semen is collected before 10am from the stud dog and its shipped to the breeder to arrive before 12 noon next day.
You ship the complete collection so that the breeder can inseminate the bitch two or three time over number of days. You don’t need veterinary professional to inseminate but it is important that it’s done correctly.
