Looking for information on AI in foxes, sorry if a thread like this has already been posted!

There's a bunch of papers but you'll have to skim the abstracts for the most relevant ones. https://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=e ... lpes&btnG=

You'll probably have to buy access though unless you have a university library or something to get them through.

There are a couple of paper that came out of the Belyaev project that are worth a read. There's very little info out there though and I ended up contacting fur farms to see if they were prepared to share information but no joy was had.

Just a curious question.

Wouldn't AI for foxes be the same for other species? I know cattle farms will do similar things (my mother works with a farmer nurse and she talks about a lot of stuff)

Instead of just focusing on the species, just research the topic and the equipment used.

It's species-specific. Uteruses are shaped completely differently depending on a species, so AI-ing a cow is going to be a lot different than AI-ing a fox.

From the information I've gathered talking to the few people who have been forthcoming, AI'ing foxes isn't even similar to inseminating dogs.
Inseminating cows is different to inseminating pigs is different to inseminating dogs. As ash says... mammals don't have one model of uterus.

Ah, thanks for correcting me.

With that choice eliminated, there are two other options I see.
1) Go through the learning experience yourself
2) Intern at a fur farm and learn

Not sure how possible number two would even be, but I'm sure it could be possible.

An experienced zoological vet may know how to do it or may have access to papers that could instruct them how to do it. I'd call around to experienced veterinarian facilities who might go through the trouble to learn.

As far as doing it yourself, the only options would be the ones Vata Raven suggested, since no one here has done it before. Sorry. :/
