After processing the semen, the tube is properly labeled with the dog’s name, owner’s name, date, breed and AKC number and securely packaged in a Styrofoam box containing ice packs. Paperwork is placed in the box displaying the quantity of semen and extender so the veterinarian receiving the semen knows the details of the sample they are using.
We ship all of our semen using FedEx as the carrier. Most of the semen is shipped overnight with a guarantee that the recipient will receive it by 10:30 AM the next morning. Our facility is a known shipper, so we can ship or receive semen 365 days of the year, although it can be quite costly to ship “same day” to many areas of the country or on holidays. We send the recipient the tracking number after the box has been picked up, so they can watch the progression of the shipment on-line.
