Birthing and Neonatal Workshop
Alpaca Birthing & Neonatal Clinic with Dr. Robin Skillman D.V.M. April 23, 2017 from 9:30am -3:45pm
Sierra Rose Alpacas is proud to host this hands-on neonatal clinic April 23, 2017, with Dr. Skillman D.V.M. Dr. Skillman is a highly respected camelid veterinarian that we are fortunate to have share this topic with us. This is a workshop you won’t want to miss!
This Clinic is a must-have for all alpaca breeders! Even if you have had many healthy cria in the past, this workshop will help you gain more insight and knowledge on alpaca birthing. The goals of this class are to aid the owner in getting the dam ready for gestation; maintain a healthy pregnancy; produce a live cria and get that cria and mother off to a good start together.
We will have a morning lecture with slide show presentation covering these topics and more: healthy dams make for healthy cria; nutritional needs; pre-breeding exams; female reproduction/breeding; reproductive anatomy/physiology, breeding/pregnancy diagnosis options, gestational development, birthing, dam and cria care post-partum and much more! The afternoon wet-lab using uterine simulators, will challenge registrants to diagnose the contents of the uterus, discuss a proposed delivery plan, identify and correct dystocias to deliver the cria safely. This is invaluable emergency training and a lot of fun!
One Course-book per farm is provided. Lunch is included. Class size limited. There is a lot of demand for this clinic, so register early.
