ACT Member Cathy Gartley's work at the Toronto Zoo sees her working with a variety of species
The cubs, born to Er Shun, are the first giant panda cubs born in Canada and the first giant panda pregnancy captured so early on ultrasound in Canada by SFT member Dr. Cathy Gartley, who specializes in veterinary reproduction at the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph.
The mission of the ACT is to promote animal well-being, reproductive health, responsible breeding and genetic practices, and efficient management of breeding-age animals in agriculture, veterinary practice, zoos, preserves, and ecosystems. In particular, the ACT envisions development of focus areas in theriogenology to incorporate the following in theriogenology/reproductive medicine:
1. Population control for domestic and non-domestic animals including feral animals, free-ranging and captive wildlife.
2. Genomics in livestock and companion animal practice.
