Wildlife: Care Essentials WebinarPLUS NurseEd
Rabbit Anaesthesia: where everyone holds their breath waiting for it to be over - including the patient. Rabbits have a higher reported anaesthetic mortality rate than dogs and cats. There are a number of factors that influence this, including differences in behaviour, anatomy and physiology that need to be appreciated to prepare for a safe and successful anaesthetic in this species. They may also have underlying disease processes, that are undetected, as prey species are excellent at masking signs of illness. The aim of this webinar with Megan Walmsley is to arm nurses with the knowledge and skills to address some of the challenges in rabbit anaesthesia and the confidence to advocate for these patients.
Australia is home to a unique and diverse array of native fauna. As professionals within the veterinary industry, we have a duty of care for all animals that present to our veterinary practice, including wildlife.
Presented by Melissa Fangmeier, this webinar aims to provide veterinary nurses with the knowledge to care for commonly seen native birds and possums in the Sydney region, covering important topics such as: Handling, triage and assessment, euthanasia, supportive care, and the basics of housing and feeding in a small animal general or emergency practice setting.
