Due to the relatively high rate of spaying and neutering in canine and feline patients, reproductive emergencies occur less frequently than some of the other most commonly seen emergencies. However, when presented with a reproductive emergency is important to a) recognize the condition, and b) know how to treat the condition. The goal of this talk is to present the most common reproductive emergencies in male and female dogs and cats, discuss the basic anatomy/pathophysiology and provide guidelines for basic care of these emergencies. Conditions include uterine prolapse and torsion, dystocias, prostatitis, and testicular torsion.
- The attendee should be able to recognize the most common testicular and prostatic emergencies occurring in male dogs.
- The attendee should be able to recognize the most common uterus-related emergencies occurring in female dogs and cats.
- The attendee should feel comfortable starting basic firstline treatment for male and female reproductive emergencies.
- The attendee should be able to recognize dystocia in a dog or cat.
- The attendee should understand the basics of neonatal resuscitation in dogs and cats.
