Neonatal/Birthing Clinic with Dr. Cheryl Dewitt

Saturday, May 13, 2017

Island Alpaca Farm is, once again, proud to host our Annual Birthing/Neonatal Clinic with Dr. Cheryl DeWitt!  A Seminar you won't want to miss, now in our ninth year!

Dr. Dewitt is one of the most respected camelid veterinarians in the United States. This seminar is a must-have for all future breeders, experienced breeders and veterinarians. Other livestock breeders will certainly benefit from this seminar. Enjoy a morning lecture with presentations, on female reproduction/breeding; reproductive anatomy/physiology, breeding/pregnancy diagnosis options, gestational development and much more! Afternoon wet-lab using uterine simulators, will challenge registrants to diagnose the contents of the uterus, discuss a proposed delivery plan, identify and correct dystocias to deliver the cria safely.
 Invaluable emergency training and a lot of fun!

Course-book, a light breakfast and lunch provided. Class size limited. 9:30 am - 5:30 pm. $195, and $150 for additional participants from the same farm (one course-book per farm), and just $100 for repeat guests. The price of the workshop is refundable should the attendee purchase alpacas or breedings to any of Island Alpaca fully owned herd sires. 

Special: Refer a farm or friend from another farm, (weather you are registering or not) and receive a $25 gift code to our farm or online store. Your choice!

Special Note: We can not hold the class without your help: 

Island Alpaca Co. is reaching out to our fellow breeders for participating cria-cadavers. If you have or know of anyone with a loss of a cria, Island Alpaca would like to "adopt" them for our clinic. Confidentiality respected. 
Thank you!
