Rabbits & Rodents
Pet rabbits and rodents are presenting to veterinary practitioners in ever increasing numbers. As the numbers climb, so too does the general public’s expectations that veterinarians can provide these unique species with excellent veterinary care.
The pet rabbit and rodent patient can provide unique challenges that set them apart from the more common canine and feline medicine disciplines.
This course aims to provide the practitioner with a general overview of rabbit, guinea pig, rat and mouse veterinary medicine. Beginning with the basics in rabbit and rodent biology, the course will then explore clinical anatomy and physiology, husbandry, nutrition, preventative health, handling, restraint, clinical procedures, therapeutics, anaesthesia and common problems in rabbit and rodent health.
