This practical course (now featuring Placentitis and Foetal Sexing) has been developed for equine veterinarians and mixed animal practitioners with a working knowledge in the field of equine gynaecology (mare reproduction) and provides a critical update on topics of relevance to mare reproduction practice. Whereas a previous VetPD Advanced Mare Reproduction courses in Australia focussed on artificial breeding, the emphasis on this course will shift to more general equine stud practice and highlight the hot topics of placentitis and foetal sexing.
The highly-illustrated lectures will be held in English. Lecture topics will include cycling problems; management of mares for artificial insemination (chilled and frozen); use of Doppler ultrasound in gynaecology; investigating barren and subfertile mares; placentitis (thinking beyond CUPT); hysteroscopy; management of fluid producing mares; twin management; foetal sexing (at 2 different windows of opportunity); uterine sampling techniques; and prevention of early pregnancy failure.
The 7 hours of practical sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice in small groups (2 – 4 attendees / ultrasound machine) and to discuss all aspects of gynaecology with the specialists. Each attendee will be rotating through the following practical stations:
The course fee includes lunch, coffee/tea breaks, extensive electronic course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to only attend the live streaming of the lectures (= Lectures Only/Live-Stream) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions). Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available.
