  • This is our seventeenth meeting in Wrocław. Our conference became a must-been event for many veterinarians interested in small animal reproduction. This year you will have an opportunity to attend lectures of international top specialists in the field of small animal reproduction: Michał Jank (Warsaw, Poland), Anna Domosławska-Wyderska (Olsztyn, Poland), Wojciech Niżański (Wroclaw, Poland), Sebastian Arlt (Zurich, Switzerland), Piotr Socha (Olsztyn, Poland), Chiara Milani (Padua, Italy), Andrea Muennich (Berlin, Germany), Małgorzata Ochota (Wroclaw, Poland), Sylwia Prochowska (Wroclaw, Poland), Lluis Ferre Dolcet (Padua, Italy), Sandra Goericke-Pesch (Hannover, Germany), Ilona Kaszak (Warsaw, Poland), Sabine Schaefer-Somi (Vienna, Austria), Agnieszka Antończyk (Wrocław, Poland), Tadeusz Frymus (Warsaw, Poland).

    The topics of lectures of the Congress are highly practical, interesting for veterinarians. We will focus on diagnostics of the ovarian cycle, we will discuss the gold standard for determining the optimal date of insemination, we will present the role of ovarian ultrasound in gynecological diagnostics, we will describe pregnancy monitoring and determining the day of delivery, we will deal with male infertility, and with neonatology. A special place will be devoted to the safety of various anesthetic models in caesarean section. We will also focus on prenatal diagnosis in small animals. World-class specialists will introduce the possibilities of modifying the ovarian cycle and determine the possible consequences of such conduct. We will devote a lot of space to the principles of Evidence-Based Medicine and Ethics in animal reproduction. Lecturers will also describe the diagnostic usefulness of modern biomarkers in the reproduction. We will encourage a discussion with new trends in pharmacological and surgical contraception - using laparoscopy, and we will assess the possibility of gonad-sparing sterilization.

    During the pre-congress week we will organize, the third time in Wroclaw, an EVSSAR Course: Small Animal Reproduction I: Physiology, Pathology in Females and Artificial Insemination. The participants will obtain a complex knowledge and skills from the field of small animal reproduction and biotechniques of reproduction used in these species.

    We kindly invite you to Wroclaw!
