Your A-OK Education Committee has prepared a Neonatal Clinic here in Oklahoma this Fall with Dr. Cheryl DeWitt of Camelid Reproductive Services.
Biography: Dr. Cheryl DeWitt, DVM is an associate veterinarian at Camelid Veterinary Services. She attended North Carolina State University for graduate studies, then relocated to Ohio to work in camelid medicine.
Class Summary: This clinic will start with a morning lecture that includes a power-point presentation. The lecture will cover:
• female reproduction/breeding
• reproductive anatomy and physiology
• breeding and pregnancy diagnosis options
• gestational development
• care of the pregnant dam
• normal and abnormal criation and care of the newborn and the high-risk cria
The afternoon will be utilizing deceased crias in a hands-on wet lab using uterine simulators. It will provide participants opportunities to diagnose the contents of the uterus, discuss a proposed delivery plan, identify and correct dystocias to deliver the cria safely, and emergency training.

Alpaca Neonatal Class and Wet Lab
This day long program will consist of a morning lecture and an afternoon wet lab for hands on experience identifying a dystocia birth. The program is presented by Dr Richard Wheeler DVM, Diplomate American College of Theriogenologists. Owner of Poudre River Veterinary clinic specializing in reproduction of small animals and livestock.
We’ve birthed close to 400 crias here at Stargazer and to this day we consider the neo-natal clinic we attended almost 25 years ago to be one of the most beneficial classes that we've attended. It will help you identify birthing problems while there is still time to safely correct them and when it is best to get veterinary assistance.
Class will consist of a morning lecture on alpaca reproduction, labor, delivery and aftercare
After lunch we will go into the wet lab portion using hands-on delivery with realistic birthing uterus dummies* and cria cadavers* . You will learn how to recognize a problem delivery (dystocia), torsions and other issues that to be aware of. (*Provided by CSU)
