Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine recently welcomed its second theriogenology resident, Carla Barstow, DVM. Dr. Barstow was named recipient of the American Kennel Club/Theriogenology Foundation Companion Animal Residency in Theriogenology in late February.
“We are very excited to not only have this residency position, but also to have Dr. Barstow,” said Robyn Wilborn, DVM, Dipl. ACT, a faculty clinician in the Theriogenology Service, one of several faculty members who will mentor Dr. Barstow while at Auburn. “Dr. Barstow has extensive experience in the dog show arena and has so much to offer our clients.”
After receiving her veterinary degree from the University of Minnesota, Barstow entered private practice in Florida. The practice emphasized reproduction, and encouraged Dr. Barstow to expand her theriogenology training, according to Auburn University.
This is Auburn’s second resident to be fully funded by the AKC/AKC Canine Health Foundation.
“We believe this speaks to the international reputation the college has in the reproduction field as well as our commitment to companion animal theriogenology,” Dr. Wilborn said.
