This wildlife course is designed for veterinary surgeons, registered veterinary nurses, veterinary students and student veterinary nurses and looks at the ethical problems relating to wildlife casualties and the possible consequences of their release, as well as triage, first aid and primary care of common conditions in British species.
The course is led by Liz Mullineaux, Scientific Advisor to SWWR and an RCVS Recognised Specialist in Wildlife Medicine (Mammalian), who has over 20 years of experience in this area.
An important and popular part of this course is making use of our available wildlife cadavars to have hands on experience of examining these animals and practicing first aid and other techniques. At the moment due to COVID-19 restrictions this part of the course is not possible and after due consideration we have decided not to run the course again in 2020. Provided the COVID-19 restrictions continue to be lifted the next veterinary course will be at SWWR on:
Sunday 11th April 2021
This is a full day course, so please bring your own packed lunch; there are facilities for heating food. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided throughout the day.
There will also be a special offer on BSAVA Manual of Wildlife Casualties for those registering for this course. A discount code will be provided to claim a £10 discount off the print or digital versions.
