Monica Parkin 

ICSB Technician
Monica has been working at Van Isle Veterinary Hospital since 2009 when she and Dr. Bruce Renooy first started ICSB Vancouver Island. Van Isle Veterinary Hospital is the only licensed ICSB (International Canine Semen Bank) facility on Vancouver Island. Monica’s specialized training and licensing provide us with access to the technology for the collection, freezing and storage of canine semen in liquid nitrogen indefinitely, as well as providing access to the licensed semen extenders and diluents from ICSB. Monica is also a breeder and understands the time-sensitive and unpredictable nature of breeding. She is available almost any day by appointment, and also offers in-house progesterone testing, incoming and outgoing semen shipping and artificial insemination services. For more information, you can also visit the ICSB website here.
