Course Information:
This course, divided into three presentations, will cover normal reproductive tract ultrasonography (equipment, technique, anatomy and typical findings) followed by abnormal reproductive tract findings, and ultimately challenging case examples to put it all together. Female reproductive ultrasound will be the initial presentation (girls go first), followed in a week by male reproductive ultrasound, and finally, in the third week pediatric ultrasound (girls + boys equals pedes).

The instructors believe veterinarians attending these courses will feel comfortable performing ultrasound with their breeder clients present!

Upon completion of the course, the participant should be able to
  • acclimate to the use of ultrasonography in the evaluation and management of canine female reproductive cases.
  • acclimate to the use of ultrasonography in the evaluation and management of canine male reproductive cases.
  • acclimate to the use of ultrasonography in the evaluation and management of feline female reproductive cases.
  • acclimate to the use of ultrasonography in the evaluation and management of feline male reproductive cases.
