Dog Semen Analysis

Scanning Dogs

Canine Scanning provides a dog semen analysis service to assess your stud dog’s fertility. As part of our canine sperm analysis procedure, we evaluate canine sperm count, motility, and morphology, amongst other factors. As a result of our male dog fertility tests, we can predict your stud dog’s likely success rate with great accuracy.

Canine Sperm Analysis

If you’re paying costly stud fees, you want to be sure that your stud dog’s sperm is the healthiest it can be to ensure a successful pregnancy. A sperm count in the 150-500 million sperm per millimetre is the optimal range for successful breeding. We would expect a good semen sample to have less than 10% abnormal sperm with at least 70% forward motility.

As part of our male dog fertility testing, we assess the following factors:

  • Canine sperm count
  • Canine sperm count
  • Sperm motility
  • Forward motility
  • Sperm morphology
  • Volume
  • Bacteria (for infections)

Male Dog Fertility Test

Dog semen analysis is a crucial element of the breeding process. We accept the chilled semen sample either via FedEx, or we can take a sample from your stud dog at our Liverpool premises. Our quick, effective and non-invasive canine sperm analysis is then undertaken in laboratory conditions using state-of-the-art equipment.

Once we’ve evaluated the quality and volume of the semen sample, we’ll explain the results in plain English and discuss your options with you. Most dogs are sexually mature by 12 months and should therefore be able to provide us with a good sample. After five years of age, sperm quality can decrease in some cases. Having said that, many older stud dogs still have excellent fertility and are more than capable of producing litters of puppies.

Our canine reproduction experts have more than 30 years’ experience of breeding dogs. At Canine Scanning, we’ve built up a solid reputation in the industry for providing the best possible services that always put the dog’s health and welfare first.
