Traveled down to Gainesville Florida for an artificial insemination!
We had been talking to the European Doberman Gemma’s mom for several months planning for her breeding. After doing progesterone testing on Gemma the date was set for the AI and it was at the University of Florida Veterinary School! Gainesville with stops is about 6 hours from us, so Colter and I were pulling out of the driveway at 5am.
After a few stops we get to the Veterinary teaching clinic and it is huge! The specialist building alone was three stories tall, biggest vet by far Colter’s ever seen, and he’s been to Auburn, and Blue pearl specialists here in Georgia.
It was so great to meet Gemma and her parents after months of talking! It’s being able to work together with such kind and warm people that make breeding Dobermans so worth it. Very very seldom to we meet another Doberman breeder or Doberman owner that are a pleasure to work or talk with.
Being a teaching hospital they did a very thorough checkup of Colter, even checked his prostate. The veterinary technician was kind of humorless. He said that Colter had a good amount of prostate fluid spray out when they checked it. I told him that I bet the fluid came from his prostate and he didn’t really respond.
We also met a few interesting cases! Met a Boston terrier breeder with two full buggies of Boston puppies! They were there for hearing and eye checks, as well as other health testing before going home.
Soon after Colter was brought out, we said our goodbyes and started the journey back home!
