As the popularity of pet goats increases and commercial herds extend their reach, the demand for veterinary expertise in caprine care skyrockets.
Dr. Sandra Baxendell, a leading figure with hands-on experience in commercial dairy goat farming and a specialised goat veterinary practice, leads this Goat Medicine and Husbandry TimeOnline course. It's tailored for veterinary professionals seeking to amplify their knowledge and adapt to the evolving landscape of goat medicine.
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. Covering a spectrum of topics from diseases in juvenile goats to adult goat pathologies and effective biosecurity measures, it is a wellspring of practical and actionable knowledge.
Embrace this opportunity to study under Dr. Sandra Baxendell, enriching your practice with her wealth of knowledge.
Excellent course. As well as updating my knowledge of new treatments, I have great dosage charts now!
