The course has been designed for pet owners, charity workers/volunteers and those who may wish to pursue a career working with dogs.
This course has been accredited with the Continuing Professional Development Office which means it has been validated by an independent body.
The aim of this course is:
- To provide you with an appreciation of the welfare issues that impact on the dog through ill health.
- To provide you with the skills to carry out a safe and accurate canine health check/ examination.
- To enable you to recognise a range of different canine ailments and conditions.
- To help you understand how to control and prevent the spread of infection.
- To provide you with the skills to carry out basic treatments and medication that has been prescribed by a veterinary surgeon.
To accompany this course I have included a FREE recording taken from one of my hosted presentations and so gives you the opportunity to take part in a “virtual lecture”. This 1 hour recorded lecture has been edited so that each topic area accompanies the corresponding lesson.
