There have been some exciting news in the field of canine neonatology, this area of veterinary medicine that focuses on newborn puppies. This research was highlighted during the recent ISCFR – International Symposium on Canine and Feline Reproduction. The veterinary group behind it, NeoCare, also shared with us their recommended protocol to better identify at-risk newborn puppies right after they are born. During our fun and interactive seminar, we will walk you through it.

Emmanuel Fontaine graduated from the Toulouse Veterinary School in 2004, and continued his studies at the Alfort Veterinary School (Paris) as trainee Veterinarian in the domestic carnivore unit of the Reproduction Department. From 2005 to 2011, he worked at the Centre d’Etude en Reproduction des Carnivores (CERCA) [Research Centre for Reproduction in Carnivores], a unit specializing in pet breeding assistance. Emmanuel Fontaine is also qualified at the European College for Animal Reproduction (ECAR) and recently completed his PhD. He joined Royal Canin Canada PRO team in September 2011.
