This webinar will be a condensed description of updates on dealing with common small animal reproductive disorders in general practice: whelping, vaginal discharges and when desexing is advisable. New information will be discussed including possible links between sex steroids and cancer, and how long it is safe to have between puppies during a whelping.
Stuart graduated from the University of Melbourne, Australia, in 1999. After two years of mixed practice work in West Gippsland in Victoria, Stuart moved to small animal practice at Monash Veterinary Clinic in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, where he became partner in 2005. In 2012 Stuart became a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Animal Reproduction and in the same year a Diplomate of the American College of Theriogenologists. Stuart has been performing small animal reproduction work since 2002 including inseminations with fresh, chilled and frozen semen in bitches. Stuart has extensive experience in TCI (Transcervical Insemination) and has published two papers on the use of TCI with frozen semen in the bitch, one comparing pregnancy results of TCI to surgical insemination, and the other presenting continued results on frozen TCI. Stuart has special interests in assisted reproductive techniques, pyometra and the effects of nutrition on reproduction.
