Abstract:

Artificial Insemination (AI) is the process of collecting semen and depositing it through artificial means into the female reproductive tract of receptive bitch at proper time and place. It is a useful way of decreasing the stress on parent stock who are separated by large geographical distances. Research on AI in the domestic dog, along with other reproductive technologies, proceed worldwide, particularly on sperm survival at freezing and the identification of deleterious components to spermatozoa or fertilization, providing important information for the preservation of wild canidae semen that are currently threatened or endangered. Main indications for AI in dogs include both medical and breeding-management reasons. As major potential advantage, AI may allow to reduce physical distances, the use of genetically valuable stud dog semen all over the world, fighting the stress of transportation of animals and inbreeding. It is also an important technique whenever physical and behavioural abnormalities in the male or female preventing natural mating. Avoiding direct contact between the male and female, AI also prevents the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, as those originated by Brucella canis or Herpes virus.
