The physiology, endocrinology, and pathology of the reproductive system are presented. Emphasis includes genital anatomy and function, endocrine interrelationships, and methods for examination of mammary gland and reproductive tract function, including diagnosis and treatment of clinical disorders.

Curricular changes require the reduction of course credits associated with a decreased number of laboratory rotations and lecture periods to a total of 4 labs, 2 lab periods for exam and 19 lectures. Practical equine reproductive content shifted to elective.

College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of Veterinary MedicineScott Bailey and Sara LyleDr. Bailey teaches special topics in Therio in CBS courses, and Dr. Lyle will teach a new elective therio course. None of this will conflict. The CBS courses are designed to further scientific knowledge and provide depth of information on domestic animal reproduction well beyond that of a practicing veterinarian. Consequently, their focus is on the literature and (patho)physiologic processes at a metabolic and molecular level. The elective will provide depth of understanding and technical training for those students interested in equine practice that will no longer be in this therio course.
This is a team-taught course with instruction provided by topic experts in theriogenology, swine medicine, ruminant medicine and exotic animal medicine. A revised budget for this course will be submitted to the CVM administration based on reduced laboratory costs.

  • The objective of this course is to acquaint the students with entry level knowledge of Theriogenology domestic and common exotic species in order to prepare them for the practice of Veterinary Medicine.

  • Theriogenology: Therio (Greek origin = beast) + gen (coming into being ) + ology (body of knowledge)

    1. That branch of veterinary medicine that deals with reproduction, including the physiology and pathology of male and female reproductive systems

  • Theriogenology encompasses more than the abnormal reproductive systems with their accompanying infertility problems, obstetrics and infectious diseases. Theriogenology also includes an understanding of:



    1. normal male and female reproductive anatomy and

  • 2. management factors influencing reproductive efficiency,

  • 3. environmental influences modifying reproductive performance and

  • 4. pharmacological methods used to influence reproduction.


Student Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, students should be able to


1) Describe/graph the hormonal changes in the "classic" female cycle (ruminant)


2) Contrast the reproductive anatomy and physiology of the ruminant with other domestic species


3) Explain how to best determine the ideal time of breeding for each species


4) Describe the physiologic changes associated with pregnancy and parturition for domestic species


5) Contrast Normal parturition and neonatology with key identifiers of maternal and neonatal disease 


5) Diagnose and treat the most common reproductive diseases


6) Develop hormonal protocols for the control of domestic animal reproduction including contraception, estrus induction, ovulation induction, abortion, luteolysis and superovulation.


7) Develop scientifically supported "position statements" for controversial issues facing the veterinary profession related to reproduction in domestic animals.
