About this course
The demand for reptile and avian species veterinary care is on the increase – how confident are you nursing these unique animals?

The course will cover all aspects of nursing both reptile and avian species in practice. It will be split into three weeks dedicated to reptiles and three weeks dedicated to birds. It will take us back to basics as so often husbandry and handling of these animals plays a huge role in their care. Often inappropriate husbandry and diet in these species leads to veterinary presentations, so understanding this will be a huge step in improving your nursing of them and a great way to improve their welfare.

You will also learn about aspects of inpatient care and how to effectively house these animals in a ward. Triage of these species will be discussed as well as critical care and anaesthesia which is often slightly different to our usual canine and feline patients.

Why do this course?
This course will help any veterinary nurse or staff member who is likely to see avian or reptile species in practice. It will give you the tools to be able to give advice on husbandry and care of these animals to owners and you will learn all the relevant care needed to deal with these animals in general veterinary practice.
