Dr. Catherine Renaudin obtained her doctoral veterinary degree from the School of Veterinary Medicine in Lyon, France in 1988. After working in private practice in France for several years, she completed a residency in equine reproduction at UC Davis and received the Christopher Smith Equine Resident Research Award for her project on the ultrasonographic evaluation of the normal combined thickness of the uterus and placenta (CTUP) in the mare and its application to early diagnosis of ascending placentitis. Using ultrasonography, Dr. Renaudin established fetal growth charts, studied parameters of the biophysical profile in the equine fetus, and showed that fetal sex determination could be performed during mid gestation via the transabdominal approach. She joined UC Davis as a clinician during the 2015 breeding season. Dr. Renaudin is a Diplomate of the European College of Animal Reproduction (equine emphasis). Dr. Renaudin’s special interests are in high-risk pregnancies, placental pathologies, fetal well-bein and ultrasonography of the genital tract of mares and stallions.
