The ExpertRating Online Veterinary Assistant Course-II (Canine Reproduction)
(leading to ExpertRating Veterinary Assistant Certification-II).

This course is the definitive guide to the principles of sound dog breeding. If you're a veterinary assistant or preparing to become one, this course will help you understand the essential facts so you can knowledgeably converse with clients on the complexities of canine reproduction.

Candidates for a breeding program need to be assessed not only for conformation, but also for health. They need a thorough reproductive examination and they should be screened for hereditary conditions such as hip dysplasia and eye diseases. Once selected, individual dogs are prepared for breeding with the help of proper nutrition, good parasite control, and appropriate vaccination programs.

By studying the hormonal cycle of the female dog in depth, the optimal time for breeding, for both natural mating and artificial insemination, can be identified. When a female fails to conceive, it is important to understand the potential causes. She may be suffering from infertility, but so may the male dog. You'll find out why.

Once the female has been confirmed pregnant, her needs must be met and preparations made for whelping (by knowing what is normal, when to intercede, and when to seek professional help). Postpartum complications in the female must be considered and close attention given to the needs of the puppies to ensure they reach weaning time in good health.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of Veterinary professionals is expected to grow much faster than average.

If you have a fetish for animals and want to turn this love into a profession, then this is the right career for you. A veterinary assistant works under the supervision of a veterinarian. Their job is akin to that of a nurse. Their job responsibilities include implementing procedures requested and needed to diagnose and treat animals, helping the veterinarians and taking histories. A veterinary assistant is not eligible to perform a diagnosis without the proper supervision by a licensed veterinarian. However, he can provide treatment to routine problems and provide counseling to the clients.


This course is useful for people who plan to make a positive impact on the lives of animals. The ExpertRating Veterinary Assistant Certification course will help you prepare for an exciting new career as a Veterinary Assistant.  

ExpertRating Online Veterinary Assistant Course-II (Canine Reproduction) Coverage (6 weeks program)  

Week One

Wednesday - Lesson 01

In this first lesson, you'll learn how to select parents for your breeding program by using blood tests, radiographs, and physical examinations. It'll give you a primer on genetic disease and then finish by telling you all about management of the breeding pair, specifically vaccinations, deworming, and nutrition.

Friday - Lesson 02

How well do you know the female dog's anatomy? Besides learning the difference between the uterus and the oviducts, this second lesson will look at the physical abnormalities that plague the female dog. You'll also find out how to diagnose infections and how those infections can impact fertility.

Week Two

Wednesday - Lesson 03

Lesson 3 will turn its attention to the male dog. He's a far more important contributor to the gene pool than the female. It'll delve into reproductive diseases that strike the male, such as cryptorchidism and Brucellosis, and conclude with a look at maladies such as testicular and prostatic disease that strike the geriatric male.

Friday - Lesson 04

When is the right time to breed a female dog? Though this is a simple question, the answer eludes many people. Lesson 4 will examine the reproductive (estrous) cycle of the female. You'll discover myriad ways to pinpoint the most productive time to breed.

Week Three

Wednesday - Lesson 05-

This lesson will explore two methods of breeding—natural and artificial. You'll be able to tell when there are problems with natural mating. When you look at artificial insemination, you have to know how to collect and evaluate semen to ensure the male is fertile. This lesson will cover how to do this as well as techniques for insemination.

Friday - Lesson 06

By now, the female has been bred and you expect a pregnancy. Unfortunately, this doesn't happen every time. This lesson will focus on reasons for infertility in the female, such as pyometra and cystic endometrial hyperplasia.

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

Lesson 7 will now turn its attention to the hormonal fluctuations that influence fertility. It'll examine silent heats, persistent estrus, and a variety of other abnormalities. This lesson will even go over a few problems with sexual behavior.

Friday - Lesson 08

This lesson will review some of the important reasons for male infertility. You'll begin by finding out why the male may not want to mate, such as having arthritis in his spine. Next, you'll look at semen production and the negative effects of such things as prostate infections. This lesson will conclude with a review of a male reproductive examination.

Week Five

Wednesday - Lesson 09

Assuming everything has gone right, you now have a pregnant dog and you have to take care of her. What should she be fed? Should she be vaccinated? What diseases could strike her during this time? Lesson 9 will look at two specific examples you need to watch for—diabetes and pregnancy toxemia.

Friday - Lesson 10

Finally, it's puppy time! In this tenth lesson, you'll learn what to expect during whelping. You'll know what's normal and when to suspect complications. Of course, this lesson wouldn't be complete without examining how to solve a whelping problem. You'll learn what you can do and how a caesarean is done.

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

Many people breathe a sigh of relief once the puppies are born, but for some dogs, this is when the problems really begin. This lesson’s topic is postpartum disease. These diseases include mastitis, metritis, and hypocalcemia—a condition where the blood calcium drops to dangerous levels.

Friday - Lesson 12

This final lesson is all about puppies. It'll look at the importance of the first drink of milk. You'll find out how to evaluate if they're getting enough food, and what to do if they aren't. This lesson will also look at how to keep them warm so they aren't chilled. This final lesson will conclude the course with an itinerary that shows you what to do for the first six months of a puppy's life.
