The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) and our corporate alliance, Zoetis, are pleased to bring you another installment in a podcast series devoted to canine reproduction education for pet owners, breeders, and veterinarians.
In this podcast we discuss whelping and dystocia with Dr. Cindy O’Connor of Slade Veterinary Hospital in Framingham, MA. Dr. O’Connor received her DVM from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the Animal Medical Center in New York. After her internship, she pursued specialty training in the area of veterinary medical genetics, pediatrics, and reproduction at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine and became a board certified specialist in veterinary reproduction.
