Fresh artificial insemination and semen analysis services are available at the Vineyard Veterinary Hospital seven days-a-week, during our normal consultation hours. Frozen semen collection appointments are available on weekday mornings only.
All semen collected for analysis or freezing is run through our state-of-the-art CASA SpermVision system – a computer-aided sperm analysis unit that simultaneously evaluates sperm concentration, motility and relevant morphology traits, in a one-step procedure that can be performed within a single consultation. A copy of the report will be provided for pet owners to take home, and we also keep copies of all reports on-file in the clinic.
Semen which has been frozen is run through the system again after freezing, in order to gain an accurate post-thaw analysis report.
The Vineyard Veterinary Hospital stores frozen semen on-site in large, liquid nitrogen-filled semen tanks – which are checked daily – ready for pet owners to access at a time that suits them.
