CHF and Zoetis Reproduction Series: Shipping Canine Semen
The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) and our corporate alliance, Zoetis, are pleased to bring you the fourth installment in a podcast series devoted to canine reproduction education for pet owners, breeders, and veterinarians.
In this podcast Kim Hesler of Zoetis Reproductive Services discusses shipping canine semen and how it may be easier than you think. Ms. Hesler grew up on a Herford cow-calf and row crop operation in northern Missouri before attending the University of Missouri, where she majored in Animal Science. She interned with Select Sires, which entailed estrus timing and artificial insemination of cattle throughout the country. In 2007, she joined the Synbiotics Reproduction Services team in Kansas City, Missouri. Through a corporate merger she is now a Reproduction Service Specialist with Zoetis where she provides assistance to customers and Zoetis Freeze Centers regarding storage and international shipment of canine and equine frozen semen.
A transcript of this podcast is also available for those who prefer to read the interview.
