About Us

The Canine Semen Bank of Columbus (CSBC) is affiliated with Beechwold Veterinary Hospital located at 4590 Indianola Avenue, Columbus,Ohio.  Beechwold Veterinary Hospital was established in 1952 and is an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) certified veterinary hospital.  For more information about our hospital visit us at 

CSBC  is directed by Dr. Mark McCloskey and Dr. Erik Weisgerber.  Each has received training in canine frozen semen preservation at Camelot Farms in College Station, Texas.  Over the past 20 years Camelot Farms has developed a highly successful canine frozen and fresh chilled semen breeding program and has trained veterinarians in frozen semen preservation and storage from across the United States, Europe, and Australia.  CSBC brings the same methods and materials developed at Camelot Farms to the breeders of central Ohio.

                                        Mark McCloskey DVM                                      Erik Weisgerber DVM 

Dr. McCloskey is a 1990 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.  He is a member of the American Animal Hospital Association, The Ohio Veterinary Medical Association, and The Society for Theriogenology. 

Dr. Weisgerber is a 1994 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.    He is also a member of the American Animal Hospital Association, The Society for Theriogenology, and The Ohio Veterinary Medical Association.

Each has worked extensively with breeders and is experienced with ovulation timing, artificial insemination, and surgical insemination.  For additional information please contact Dr. McCloskey or Dr. Weisgerber directly by either email or telephone.  Appointments for freezing must be scheduled individually by either Dr. McCloskey or Dr. Weisgerber. 

At CSBC one of our doctors will immediately begin analyzing the semen speciman and the freezing process begins usually within 20 minutes of collection.  We feel this maximizes and preserves the semen's energy reserve.
