About this course
Pigs as pets! Are you prepared?

There are now significant numbers of pigs kept as pets in the UK, with owners wishing to seek veterinary advice and help as they would other pets. This webinar is for clinicians from a range of practice backgrounds who wish to feel confident in tackling non-commercial pig cases, and want to be able to advise owners of treatment options, prognosis and prevention of the most common problems encountered in general practice with pigs (of all sizes). It will help vets ensure that clients with pigs registered at the practice are aware of the legalities of keeping them and the records needed, especially with regard to pig movements.

Why do this course?
You will develop greater confidence in diagnosing and treating pet pigs as well as better awareness of the legalities of keeping pigs so you can provide a better service to your clients.

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.
