07/09/2015

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 canine nutrition during and after pregnancy. This podcast features expert nutritionist, Dr. Emmanuel Fontaine, a veterinarian and scientific communicator with Royal Canin Canada. Dr. Fontaine received his DVM from the Toulouse Veterinary School and MSc at the Alfort Veterinary School (Paris) in the domestic carnivore unit of the Reproduction Department. He then worked at the Research Centre for Reproduction in Carnivores, a unit specializing in pet breeding assistance. He is a boarded specialist by the European College for Animal Reproduction (ECAR) and recently completed his PhD in 2012. He joined Royal Canin Canada’s PRO team in September 2011 as a reproductive nutrition specialist.
