The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) and our corporate alliance, Zoetis, are pleased to bring you the second installment in a podcast series devoted to canine reproduction education for pet owners, breeders, and veterinarians.
In this podcast Dr. William Schultz, owner of Schultz Veterinary Clinic in Okemos, Michigan discussestips for success with fresh, chilled semen breedings. Dr. Schultz received his DVM from Michigan State University in 1973, went into private practice and opened his companion animal practice in the fall of 1974. Dr. Schultz is a well-recognized expert in canine reproduction, a board member of The Society for Theriogenology and The Theriogenology Foundation, and is a frequent speaker at veterinary conferences, veterinary associations and national specialties. Dr. Schultz has lectured and published articles on transcervical and surgical inseminations using fresh, chilled and frozen semen as well as multiple articles involving carbon dioxide laser surgery.

Welcome to another podcast brought to you by the AKC Canine Health Foundation. In this podcast we hear from Dr. Kerstin Lindblad-Toh and Dr. Elinor Karsson, two of our most prominent oncology genetics researchers. Dr. Lindblad-Toh is a professor in comparative genomics at Uppsala University and the Scientific Director of Vertebrate Genome Biology at the Broad Institute. Dr. Karlsson is a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University and was recently awarded the Charles A. King Trust Postdoctoral Fellowship.
In this podcast we learn about the research that is refining the genes and gene signatures associated with osteosarcoma and how this may lead to better treatments. Initial findings have been published in the open access journal Genome Biology, entitled "Genome-wide analyses implicate 33 loci in heritable dog osteosarcoma, including regulatory variants near CDKN2A/B."
