Welcome to the International Canine Semen Bank™
- Main Office

International Canine Semen Bank (ICSB) was founded by Professor Carrol C. Platz, Jr in 1971. This program is based on techniques developed by Professor Platz over more than 40 years of research and operation.

Through Professor Platz' many decades of research at the University of Oregon Medical School, Baylor College of Medicine, Texas A&M University and continuing in the ICSB laboratory, we have produced thousands of puppies using fresh and frozen canine semen. ICSB and associates were first in producing litters registered by the AKC, The American Field Dog Association and the National Greyhound Association, and assisted in developing the guidelines used by these organizations for registering litters produced from frozen semen. We have produced litters from frozen semen that had been collected and stored by ICSB for 38 years prior to thawing and insemination at ICSB.

Under Professor Platz' direction, this research continues and provides the dog breeder with the most successful program available using fresh, fresh chilled and frozen canine semen and artificial insemination using non-surgical and surgical procedures.

ICSB has had the good fortune to have trained some of the most knowledgeable and professional veterinarians and breeders involved in animal breeding. We are proud of this and continue to strive for excellence by making ongoing training and continued study the most important part of our business. Our skilled technicians are an integral part of at the ICSB Main Office and are here to assist our clients with any aspect of our program.

After nearly 50 years of gaining knowledge and growing our program, we are very proud to have opened 53 ICSB centers in the US and overseas. ICSB is represented in more than 14 countries and is still growing.
