The MAVIC Insemination Tube (or Catheter) is the closest to a TCI possible without veterinary equipment and facilities. Because there was a need to improve the success rates of vaginal artificial insemination in dogs, the MAVIC was developed.

Typically, semen is deposited using a regular insemination tube, however, this often inadequately transfers the semen to the uterus. Subsequently, the classical legs-up method to reduce semen reflux (backflow) was commonly used. The MAVIC insemination catheter was developed to technically respond to these problems, making breeders’ and veterinarians’ lives easier. 

The MAVIC insemination catheters increase success by mirroring nature. During a natural mating, a tie occurs with the male penis being locked in the vagina of the female. This tie lasts approximately 10 to 20 minutes, during which time the entire vagina is occupied by the penis. The engorged penis naturally prevents semen reflux. At the same time, the dog’s movements and the expansion of the bulbus glandis of the male stimulates the vagina, inducing contractions that release oxytocin in the female. Concurrently, these events facilitate semen transfer from the cranial vagina, to the uterus and oviducts of the female, via the cervix.
