Webinar April 10th - Contraceptive option for cats during Covid-19

by Joyce Briggs | Apr 07, 2020
Use of MA during Covid-19 As many communities delay sterilization surgeries for dogs and cats, ACC&D believes megestrol acetate (MA) is an option for short-term contraception of some female cats. The risk/benefit change and the short-term nature of COVID-19 pandemic restrictions have prompted this recommendation.

Find out more about how this could work in practice by joining us on Friday April 10th at 3 pm EDT. The webinar is free and is intended for veterinarians and animal welfare organizations who want to know more about new possibilities with non-surgical contraception solutions for cats.

Presenters will be augmented by a veterinary specialist in small animal reproduction and a specialist in regulatory approval for animal health. There will be time for Q&A and materials will cover and build on ACC&D's Covid-19 cat contraception resources. We have applied for advance approval of Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credits.

The webcast will be available to view on-demand after the event. We will post the link to our website once it becomes available. For more details, including speaker bios and to register, please click here.
