Virbac – Updating the Body of Evidence Around Desexing and LH

Free Webinar brought to you by Virbac Animal Health


The science around canine desexing continues to evolve and the decision for the individual pet and owner can be difficult to navigate.

In this live webinar, Professor Michelle Kutzler of Oregon State University will take us through the latest research around the effects of luteinising hormone, particularly the recent research on canine lymphoma.

During this live session, you will have the opportunity to ask Professor Kutzler questions as she helps us navigate the sea of literature on when to desex and the effects of desexing. This valuable session will enable you to confidently discuss evidence-based recommendations with your clients.
