Pet goats are becoming more popular and commercial goat herds are growing in size and distribution, so it is important that veterinarians are up to date with their knowledge to provide the best service to goat clients, and care to caprine patients.
Goats have some key differences from sheep and cattle but once these are known, diagnosing and treating goats becomes a lot easier. This course will cover the main diseases of goats (both pet and commercial) as well as biosecurity measures to address untreatable diseases that need to be eradicated or kept out of goat herds. The tutor has run her own commercial dairy goat farm and stud as well as working with large goat farms. She has a goat only vet practice in Brisbane and runs regular training courses for goat breeders across Australia.
I can't recommend a course run by Dr Sandra Baxendell highly enough. Her notes and videos are great and she is on the forum daily answering questions and challenging us all with case studies. Great course, fantastic presenter.

The presentation of common surgical procedures in this course was engaging, descriptive and relevant to a field veterinarian. The lecturer has vast clinical experience, is knowledgeable and approachable, and offers an excellent archive of references.
