Trans Cervical Insemination (TCI)

This involves using a rigid endoscope with a camera attached to guide a catheter through the cervix and deposit semen directly into the uterus, this method can be performed with the bitch conscious or lightly sedated.  Frozen/chilled extended semen is used for this method of insemination and can significantly increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
