Neonatal/Birthing Seminar with Dr. Cheryl Dewitt
April 6, 2019
216 Acorn Dr
Maryland Alpaca Breeders Assoc.
This clinic will be comprised of a morning lecture with a power-point presentation, to cover female reproduction/breeding; reproductive anatomy and physiology, breeding and pregnancy diagnosis options, gestational development, care of the pregnant dam, normal and abnormal cria presentation and care of the newborn as well as the high-risk cria.
The afternoon will include a "hands-on wet-lab" using uterine simulators, that will challenge participants to diagnose the contents of the uterus, discuss a proposed delivery plan, and identify and correct dystocias to deliver the cria safely. Emergency training, and a lot of fun!
Cost is $200 (up to 2 members per farm - $100 each additional member per farm). Full Farm MABA members can attend at no charge (only farms in MD and DE that own alpacas are eligible for Full Farm member status). Continental breakfast and lunch are included. FMI see MABA website or email email@example.com.
Seminar is limited to 28 participants.
