at Tier 1 Veterinary Medical Center

Advanced Reproductive Technology for Breeding Success

Tier 1 Veterinary Medical Center is proud to offer transcervical artificial insemination (TCI) services as part of our advanced reproductive technologies for pets. This state-of-the-art technique allows for the breeding of dogs without the need for surgery, providing a less invasive and more natural alternative to traditional artificial insemination methods.

What is Transcervical Artificial Insemination?

Transcervical artificial insemination is a technique used to deposit semen directly into the uterus of a female dog using a specially designed endoscope. This method is performed without the need for anesthesia and mimics natural mating, making it safer and more comfortable for the animal.

Benefits of Transcervical Artificial Insemination

  • Minimally Invasive: Unlike surgical insemination, TCI does not require incisions or anesthesia, reducing potential health risks and recovery time.
  • Higher Success Rates: By depositing the semen directly into the uterus, TCI increases the chances of successful fertilization compared to traditional artificial insemination.
  • Less Stressful: The procedure is less stressful for the female dog, as it is closer to natural mating behaviors.
  • Broadens Genetic Pool: TCI allows for the use of semen from distant or international sires without the need for transporting animals, thereby broadening the genetic diversity available to breeders.

When to Consider Transcervical Artificial Insemination

TCI is an excellent choice for breeders looking to:

  • Utilize semen from males that are geographically distant.
  • Breed females that are unable to mate naturally due to size, temperament, or health issues.
  • Increase the genetic diversity of their breeding programs.
  • Reduce the health risks associated with mating and pregnancy in older or health-compromised females.

What to Expect During the TCI Procedure

  • Pre-Procedure Evaluation: The female dog will undergo a thorough health check and reproductive evaluation to determine the optimal timing for insemination.
  • Procedure Day: The TCI procedure is performed by a skilled veterinarian using an endoscope. The process is generally quick, and the female can typically go home the same day.
  • Post-Procedure Care: Aftercare is minimal, but we provide detailed instructions on how to care for your dog post-procedure to ensure the best chances of pregnancy.
