Abstract:
This case report represents the conception of a 3-year-old female Labrador Retriever by transvaginal insemination at College of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry, Anjora, Durg, India. The dog exhibited a history of vaginal bleeding for six to ten days and showed reluctance to engage in natural mating. Vaginal cytology confirmed the presence of 80 to 90% cornified cells, indicating the estrous cycle. As natural mating was not feasible, artificial insemination (AI) was selected as an alternative approach. Semen collection was done by digital pressure and massage technique and transvaginal insemination was conducted with the assistance of an elevated hindquarters position and a sterile AI sheath. Pregnancy confirmation was carried out via ultrasonography 35 days post insemination. The case highlights the effectiveness of transvaginal insemination as a viable solution for female dogs experiencing difficulties with natural mating, offering breeders and veterinarians a valuable reproductive tool.
