Newsletter of the Theriogenology Foundation Vol. 7, Summer 2019 www.theriofoundation.org Mission Statement The Theriogenology Foundation is a global resource that supports education and research in reproductive medicine; ensuring that future generations of animals continue to enrich our lives through service, companionship, and food for a growing human population while conserving our natural resources. The Theriogenology Foundation: Celebrating a Decade of Dedication to the Future of Animal Reproduction Ten years ago, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, newly minted SFT President Dr. Tom Riddle announced that the combined boards of the SFT and ACT were successful in jointly completing the formation of the Theriogenology Foundation.
Following the Therio Awards ceremony, Tom spearheaded the First Annual Theriogenology Foundation Auction which surpassed all expectations by bringing in nearly $13,000 for the brand-new 501c3.
I revisited the Albuquerque International Airport this winter, and was drawn to the same Lincoln Fox sculpture that attracted me in 2009, accompanied by a plaque with his words: The dream of flight is born within the heart of man, embracing the desire to be free from the confines of the earth’s surface. Hopefully the dream includes the possibility of freedom from limiting thought and action. As our imagination is freed to receive greater truths, then fear, closed thinking, and poverty of spirit will be left behind . far below. When I took the reins from Dr. Riddle as TF President, I inherited a TF Board that opened their minds, used their imagination, never stopped dreaming of what we could achieve and always desired to do just a bit more.
Over 10 years, forty-three TF Board members have brought a wealth of knowledge, spirit and resources that has lifted students up, pushed research forward and promoted our specialty. They are the advocates for the pets in our lives, supporters of military and assistance dog teams, educators of the next generation of specialists and ambassadors for how the reproductive health of all animals impacts human health.
The great news is that the Foundation has helped many. The challenge is that many still do not know who we are and what we do. If you’ve taken the time to read the last 10 issues of our biannual publication, THERiver, you already know the numbers which justify our tremendous pride in accomplishment. We are poised to further scale up our program goals, collaborations and research initiatives when additional funding is secured. In 2009, no one would have predicted that generous giving at the 2018 Annual Conference would yield an unprecedented $78,000. For our 10-year anniversary, we believe that we can reach the magical goal of $100,000.
Through your giving, you have the power to promote lasting, positive change for generations to come. Because it all started in the Land of Enchantment. Feel the magic.

www.theriofoundation.org 3 TF Grants at Work Oklahoma State University – ACT Student Outreach Grant The SFT student members at Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences would like to extend our gratitude for the financial assistance provided by the Theriogenology Foundation Board of Directors via an ACT Student Outreach Grant. With the financial assistance we were able to provide housing for our guest speaker from Cornell University, Dr. Soon Hon Cheong, DACT. Dr. Cheong visited Oklahoma State University’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences campus and spoke to our student SFT club at 12pm on September 20th, 2018, in the main lecture hall auditorium in McElroy Hall.
About 60 bodies in total, including students and faculty, were in attendance to the presentation. During his presentation Dr. Cheong presented the SFT student members with information pertaining to two unique cases: a preputial swelling in a 10-month-old Brown Swiss bull and a granulosa cell tumor in a 2-monthold Arabian filly. After the presentation Dr. Cheong was also escorted out to the OSU CVHS Ranch where he was able to have further interaction with some sophomore students, about half of which were SFT club members, during their Equine Palpation elective course. Thank you again for assisting our student chapter with this opportunity, we are grateful! University of Illinois – ACT Student Outreach Grant The first weekend of March Dr.
Ana Adams came to the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. On Friday, Dr. Adams spoke to students over lunch about some of the aspects of canine reproduction in a private practice and some of the business aspects. Saturday morning, Dr. Adams gave further details on canine reproduction techniques to a group of ten students. After the lecture and lunch, Dr. Adams demonstrated to students how to manually collect stud dogs. Once the studs had been collected, Dr. Adams discussed evaluation of canine semen with the students as well as the freezing process. Students were able to assist in semen evaluation and were able to observe the extending and freezing process.
Dr. Adams’teachings were great experiences for the students involved. Several of the students are now considering including canine theriogenology as something they would like to do in practice. While students are able to learn a lot from lectures, there is something much more insightful when it comes to hands on experience.
The Illinois Student Chapter of the Society for Theriogenology would like to thank the Theriogenology Foundation for funding that allowed us to implement this lab and we would like to thank Dr. Ana Adams for her wisdom and bright attitude. University of Florida – Student Chapter Grant On January 14, 2019, Dr. Thomas Riddle from Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky, traveled to Gainesville, Florida to speak to students at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine about the procedures he routinely performs as a thoroughbred breeding farm practitioner. Dr. Riddle discussed the veterinarian’s role in equine reproduction and provided information to students about topics such as breeding soundness considerations, twin management, and postpartum care.
A highlight of the lecture was Dr. Riddle’s instruction on fetal gender determination. He discussed the importance of accurate“fetal sexing”and showed a variety of ultrasonographic images to“train your eye.”After walking students through these examples, he displayed new images to quiz students so that they could test their newfound skill. At the end of the meeting, Dr. Riddle provided advice on how to maximize the veterinary student experience, discussed potential externship and internship opportunities, and answered questions about the future job market for equine veterinarians. The UFCVM student chapter of the Society for Theriogenology would like to thank the Theriogenology Foundation for their generous funding, which allowed Dr.
Riddle to travel to Florida and played an instrumental role in ensuring the success of the meeting. This gathering was a great opportunity for students to enhance their education in theriogenology and to learn from Dr. Riddle’s years of experience in the field.
University of Illinois – Student Chapter Grant Mid-March Dr. Kurt Sladky came to speak to students from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. He spoke to a joint group of students from the Theriogenology club and the Non-Traditional Species club. Dr. Sladky spoke on small mammal, reptile, and avian reproduction. He covered what was considered normal for several of the more popular species as well as covering common pathologies in these species. Exotic animal reproduction of this flavor is not a topic that is covered in depth in many places and his lecture was very insightful to the students present.
The Illinois Student Chapter of the Society for Theriogenology would like to thank the Theriogenology Foundation for the funds to bring Dr. Sladky to UIUC and we would like to thank Dr. Sladky for sharing his expertise with our students.

1954 Society Russell Crisman Lowry Heussler Ira Kaplan Michelle LeBlanc Carol McLeod Anita Migday Tom Riddle Mike Thompson Warren Wilson Dwight Wolfe Congratulations to the AKC, AKC-CHF, TF Companion Animal Residents Beginning Their Programs in 2019 Jamie M. Douglas, DVM Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine Dr. Jamie M. Douglas received her DVM from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2014 and her master’s degree in animal science (focus: reproduction) from Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s College of Agricultural Sciences in 2015. She returned to Michigan State University to complete a veterinary anesthesia internship in 2015.
Dr. Douglas went on to hold a post-doctoral position with the Richard M. Schubot Parrot Wellness and Welfare program housed at the University of California, Davis’School of Veterinary Medicine studying avian welfare and analgesics. Her future goals include holding a teaching position in a veterinary program, continuing to improve animal health through veterinary research, and providing services in the field of theriogenology to aid and improve reproductive performance in companion animals. She is the proud owner of three dogs, two Boston Terriers and what can only be described as a yeti (note: the yeti is a familial term and not in any way a breed recognized by the AKC).
Thoughts regarding the AKC/AKC CHF/TF Theriogenology Residency Program: I am so very grateful to have been selected for this training opportunity in the fields of canine health, canine futures, and research. Besides specializing in a field that I have always respected, I am afforded the opportunity to work alongside exceptional mentors at Auburn University thanks to the generosity of the AKC. An added bonus: I get to provide service, support, and give back to dogs, their owners, the Canine Performance athletes, and students each and every day. Craft Beer Tasting Fundraiser for the Theriogenology Foundation During the Opening Session Reception Wednesday evening, July 24 or the Awards Dinner and Story Night Reception, July 26, attendees will have the chance to experience some locally brewed craft beer and help the Theriogenology Foundation at the same time.

www.theriofoundation.org 11 Our goal is to find the genetic loci associated with key behavioral traits of military and service dogs.
While decades of selective breeding practices have shaped the canine genome, we now look to genetics to guide our selection of dogs for specific training and career paths. THE BROAD INSTITUTE The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard was launched in 2004 to use genomics to advance science and human health. In 2005, Broad scientists led an international team to decode the DNA of Tasha, the first dog ever sequenced. Since then, scientists have compared the DNA of hundreds of dogs and found millions of differences. Hidden in this complexity are the genetic variants shaping each dog’s behavior.
INVEST IN IN-GENE-UITY! We have a unique opportunity today to apply cutting edge technology to identify the genes driving dog behavior. This is a critical first step. With the key genetic factors found, we can strategically select better working dogs, saving time, energy and dollars. Rarely do we have the opportunity to make such an impact for our national security and our disabled Americans. Please consider supporting the effort. For the Working Dog Project, it is critically important that we include both successful and unsuccessful dogs. We are interested in: Dogs who about to enter a training program Dogs who are currently enrolled in training Successful working dogs Dogs who were unable to complete their training program for behavioral reasons We will compare the behavioral and genetic profiles of successful and unsuccessful dogs to identify genes associated with working dog performance.
By setting concrete and measurable goals with the two year Working Dog Project, we expect to powerfully advance any future phases, which may take years to explore. Our long term goal is to provide our partners with practical guidance, based on our research, that will increase the number of dogs succeeding in our program.
