This module features genomic testing, including which tests are readily available and which ones are likely to yield useful data. Caution: interpreting these results isn’t always straightforward, and this needs to be communicated to your client.
Module 2 – Female reproduction: cycle management, insemination techniques & pregnancy diagnosis
This module considers diagnostics including vaginal cytology, progesterone levels, LH testing and vaginoscopy, and how these relate to cycle management in the breeding bitch and queen. Artificial insemination, storage and handling for fresh, chilled or frozen semen follows, as well as methods and timing for pregnancy diagnosis.
Module 3 – Female reproduction: pregnancy management & dystocia
Canine pregnancy certainly carries risk. This module delves into the medical and surgical management options for dystocia – how to determine if intervention is necessary, and what steps could maximise neonatal survival.
Module 4 – Female reproduction: common diseases
Fertility isn’t automatic. This module focuses on uterine and ovarian diseases which can damage fertility and complicate breeding management.
Module 5 – Male reproduction: breeding soundness exam, semen collection & analysis
The male dog is 50% of the fertility equation. This session presents the breeding soundness examination in the male dog, including common diagnostic tests for evaluation of the prostate, testes, and how to interpret the spermiogram.
Module 6 – Male reproduction: common diseases
Stud dog fertility can be impacted by a range of complications and systemic diseases, yet troubleshooting male fertility is achievable. This module provides insight into the diagnosis, treatment and awareness of suboptimal fertility in breeding males.

Your Questions Answered
What is “On Demand”?
We created the On Demand series because you asked us for longer course access. The veterinary industry can throw busy times at us, and we received more and more requests from individuals who needed more time to complete their online courses. We think 6 months is the sweet spot – you have plenty of time to work through your CPD, and we can regularly review and update the content to make sure the course stays relevant. You can revisit the materials as often as you wish.
How and when do I access learning materials?
We use a one-stop learning platform for our web-based courses. It’s intuitive, simple and easy to navigate, and we’ll email login details to you as soon as your purchase is confirmed. You can access notes, recordings and resources any time of day or night via your personalised course library. You don’t have to watch a whole video in one sitting, and you’re in complete control.
How long is course access open?
24/7 access is available for 6 months via your course library, starting on your purchase date. For example, if you sign up on July 1st, your access will be open until January 1st the following year. We’ve chosen 6 months because veterinary medicine moves fast and our goal is to provide up to date learning materials to the VetPrac community. The education team will assess, review and update the course at the end of the subscription period. This way, we know we’re offering only current and relevant information.
