The PetCount™ Sperm Quality Test makes it possible to separate all the good swimmers, the Progressive Motile Sperm Cells (PMSCs) from the rest of the sperm population which include dead sperm cells, morphological abnormal sperm cells and motile but not progressive motile sperm cells.

The color reaction (test result) is a direct result of the number of PMSCs in the semen sample - the darker the better and the more PMSCs.

This new product is so exciting. The Patented Swim Up Technology has been back by studies and has been used in tests for humans. The Test is 30 minutes for in home use. There is a barrier that the healthy viable sperm swim thru.

210 million is a viable count 

This product has so many great benefits. I am happy to chat about it and answer any questions you may have. 

The single most important factor in determining the sperm quality of a dog is the sperm cells ability to swim in a straight line, a term called Progressive Motility.

The PetCount Sperm Quality Test for dogs measures the number of Progressive Motile Sperm Cells, also called PMSCs.

"The semen factors thought to be most important to fertility are the motility, the number and the morphology of the spermatozoa. There is a direct relationship between sperm production by the testes and testicular size. Therefore, larger dogs have higher sperm counts than smaller dogs. It has been reported that there is a relationship between sperm count and body weight. This may be true for animals in good body condition, but the relationship is lost in obese animals because testicular size does not increase. Even among breeds of similar size, there are variations in sperm counts." Johnson CA, Reproductive System Disorders. In: Nelson RW and Couto CG (eds) Small Animal Internal Medicine 4th edition. St. Louis, Elsevier.

At least 70% of a dog's sperm sample should have a rapid, steady forward progression. A “normal” dog should have a minimum of 210 million Progressive Motile Sperm Cells (PMSCs)/ml based on a total count of minimum 300 million sperm cells per ml.

The threshold value always needs to be taken with a grain of salt. It only takes one “lucky” sperm cell to fertilize an egg. Meaning the suggested 210 million PMSC is a rough Ball Park figure and should not be seen as the final number. You would clearly see dogs with lower PMSCs who can make puppies and vice versa.

I have one of my studs on Problem Male as we had discovered a very poor count. I used my Pocket Microscope and saw what I believe is a good count now. However, I cannot do a proper count. This is a great tool to let me know if it is time to make the drive to my vet for a formal evaluation. 

I could go on and on about how cool this new product is
