|onyx'girl||Wonder how the person the OP was chatting with lucked out with 20yr frozen and what vet he uses.|

I have used Hutchinson in Cleveland - considered one of the tops in his field - nada no pups! A vet in Olny Md, and a BC vet here who has had ALOT of sucess with other breeds....I know Dean Calderon got frozen from Germany (Raiser's dog) and she got 3 pups I think using that, and a friend with Rotts has gotten pups 3 or 4 times with frozen with her....it just seems GSDs are really had to time for frozen.

|lhczth||Sure seems to be a problem in our breed. I hear about successful frozen AI breedings all the time, but not much in GSD. Club member did a frozen years ago with a BC (male was in Australia) and she got 9 pups.|

|jocoyn||From what I have heard, chilled is pretty successful but it has been really hard to get success frozen. Is that correct?|

I have also tried frozen AIs several times, to the tune of thousands of dollars, and never gotten pups. It seems in general the success rates of the repro vets don't match the success rates of most actual breeders I know......
But that said, we have several straws of semen from our own male in storage that we plan to keep and hopefully use some day. Hopefully we'll be one of the success stories at some point.

|Doc||I've done the frozen several times with no success. The procedure is outrageously expensive especially when you hear " looks like she isn't pregnant" after the ultrasound. I am still going to try it again - some fools never learn.|

|lhczth||Live side by side AI. I couldn't have afforded the frozen.|

|jocoyn||I don't think she did blame it on the procedure, but it was a LOT of money all the way around! Not something you would want to do unless you had a very special reason.|

I wouldn't blame the pyo on the procedure - although I know it would be hard NOT to!
I think Lisa did a live side by side AI - not 110% sure....
I will do it again - when Kira or Panther are proven....Bengal is too close to both Xito and Ufo.....I'd like to get a Xito litter out of either of them, and an Ufo especially out of Kira....

Lee, your experience mirrors the one a friend of mine had. Actually her bitch developed pyometra after the procedure and had to be spayed.
Didn't Lisa Clark have/use frozen Belschik semen? Or was the last breeding with him chilled or an actual breeding?
