HORROR COOLED SEMEN STORY: One of my clients in Alaska called and asked
knew how to avoid further cooled semen disasters. The story goes: A
bitch owner called
and needed cooled semen from the Alaskan based stud on a Saturday. Not

Clinic, where they were
coldly told that their needs did not qualify as an "emergency".

was devastated and felt badly for the bitch owner, too. If vets will

IF you are a CANINE CRYOBANK CLIENT and have a home page advertising
your dogs, please send the address to us if you want to have reciprocal

I know this will be especially helpful to the many foreign and domestic
breeders trying to find out if studs have frozen semen stored.
Our new webpage will be up very soon detailing the "how to's"
cooled, fresh semen, progesterone testing,
plasma for neonates, etc. It is becoming much more important to let the
world know of your dogs' availability through frozen and
cooled semen and this interlinking will make it easier to find all the
necessary information in one place.
Thankful that the happy stories outnumber the horror stories this week,
