    Default Bred my MH female today

    Dr. Mary Tatum did the procedure today and said everything went great. Now the waiting begins.

    Okay let's not advertise litters on the main forum - how hard is that to understand...even indirect, skirt the rules advertising!

    Not advertising. No confirmation or anything. I was just glad that part was over.

    I wish you all the luck Terry. I personally never had much luck with frozen AI.

    Here's to a big litter....

    Mary Tatum is very good and seems to get the big litters when others are failing. I have no luck with AI's, but frozens are ok. Sometimes Mary does both chilled and frozen also.

    Good luck to you Terry! I've shipped a lot of fresh chilled and frozen..... never had an issue. The smallest litter I've had was 5 with fresh chilled and it was bred way late. I was surprised they got anything.

    My smallest litter from frozen was one and post thaw semen quality was in the low 40's, wouldn't wish that on anybody, highest so far is eight with a different bitch and stud. Buns in the oven last Thursday with the previously singleton mom and the stud's post thaw semen quality was in the mid 90's and the timing smack dead on so we'll see how it goes this time. Most people don't realize the time, expense and anxiety that is involved in putting together a frozen / surgical breeding, good luck with yours and good choice in vets with Mary Tatum.

    Yes, you need to have good thaw motility and exact timing. If either is off the results of one puppy is usually worse than none. Always try and obtain the post thaw motility before buying semen. You couldn't give it to me if the motility is bad. Good luck-let us know how it turns out. I have had females that had 12 with the same dog naturally and with the same exact timing none with AI.
