About this course
Debunk hibernation myths surrounding garden kept tortoises

Tortoises are common pets but often suffer poor welfare due to bad husbandry. When winter comes tortoises slow down for the hibernation process - do we know how to see them through this process safely?

This webinar we will go through pre-hibernation health screening in tortoises, helping identify issues which could make hibernation unsafe for pet tortoises. It explores methods on how to safely hibernate tortoises, helping you advise owners on safe best practice with their pets at this time of year. There will also be a brief overview on common post-hibernation issues and how to support the tortoise inpatient through these conditions.

Why do this course?
This webinar aims to build confidence in tortoise care with the overall aim to educate owners on safe hibernation practice to improve animal welfare.

A convenient and flexible way to earn some CPD hours without leaving home is to select webinars to view from our extensive library of recorded webinars.

Participants gain access to the webinar for two weeks which allows them to view it at their leisure and convenience as well as review aspects as needed to enhance their learning.
