All You Need to Know About Reptiles

20 October 2014

UK - Do you want to learn all there is to know about reptiles? If so, this is the course for you.

The BSAVA, in conjunction with BVZS, has put together this fabulous 3 day mini module series covering everything from basic husbandry to advanced therapeutics and analgesia.

3 days of CPD will discuss basic handling and husbandry, through diagnosing the illnesses and learning the therapeutics available and finishing with the surgical aspects of anaesthesia and analgesia.

  • Come and explore the handling and husbandry of reptile with Ian Sayers at Blackpool Zoo
  • Learn about the common problems which reptiles can suffer and what can go wrong.
  • Learn about the treatments and drugs available and what to do with a hibernating tortoise.

Days two and three at The Hilton, will develop the skills of those already confident in the basics and look at more complex cases.

Kevin Eatwell will explain the ins and outs of diagnosing the problems and illnesses of these more unusual patients and Michelle Barrows will continue by looking at Tips and techniques for successful reptile surgery.

You can book all three courses for the price of two with a 3 for 2 offer, or book individual days depending on your interest.
