Veterinary Nursing of Exotic Species Lectures: Rabbits, Birds & Rodents

Hi all,

I have been asked back to lecture again this year by The College of Animal Welfare at Potter’s Bar, so will be running three days of lectures for veterinary nurses who are interested in caring for exotic pets. ‘Exotics’ in veterinary medicine as you’ll know covers any pet that isn’t a dog or cat, so we will be kicking off on 11th May with Rabbits, then 3rd June with nursing care of Birds and on the 19th October Small Furries aka rodents and other small mammals. Please share if you know of any veterinary nurses who are interested in improving their knowledge and practical skills with exotic pets. I promise they will be fun and useful sessions to build your confidence with these animals, and you’ll bring back lots of tips & tricks to use in practice!

Here’s the link to where you can book a place (http://www.caw.ac.uk/courses/cpd/veterinary-nursing-cpd-short-courses-events/?bb=52754), and some more details in the meantime:
