ICSB – Atlantic

ICSB color logo

Our ICSB canine semen processing/storage center opened in May 2004 at our veterinary clinic here in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Our exclusive operating territory is Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. We of course will continue to offer our services to those outside of these areas as well.

The International Canine Semen Bank was founded by Professor Carrol C. Platz, Jr. ICSB’s program is based on techniques developed by Prof. Platz. Through 30 years of research started at the University of Oregon Medical School, Baylor College of Medicine, Texas A&M University and continuing at the ICSB laboratories, thousands of puppies have been produced using frozen canine semen. ICSB and associates were first in producing litters registered by the AKC, the American Field and the National Greyhound Association and assisted in developing the guidelines used by these organizations for registering litters produced from artificial insemination of frozen canine semen.

Under Prof. Platz’s direction, this research continues and provides the dog breeder with the most successful program available using fresh, fresh chilled, frozen canine semen, and artificial insemination.

We are pleased to combine the latest in ICSB technology with Dr. Carnegy’s own interests and success in canine breeding and look forward to expanding our expertise in this field.
