Course Description

There are many surgical procedures not taught in the veterinary curriculum, including gonad sparing sterilization. Gonad sparing sterilization is supported by the American Veterinary Medical Association as an alternative to routine ovariohysterectomy or castration. The surgical approaches for ovary-sparing hysterectomies and vasectomies are similar to traditional methods and easy to master.

Things to Learn

Attendees will learn how to perform an ovary-sparing hysterectomy and vasectomy. In addition, attendees will learn about the health risks and benefits of gonad-sparing surgical sterilization surgeries.
