Bundle of 4 LagoLearn Courses
Basic husbandry. This talk covers what a vet or nurse would need to know about basic rabbit care when speaking with new owners. We touch on indoor and outdoor rabbit care, feeding, behaviour, handling and vaccination.
Hospitalisation and Monitoring
This talk covers the creation of a rabbit service in your practice – how to ensure good biosecurity and a safe comfortable environment for rabbits. We will talk about handling, hospital setup, syringe feeding, monitoring and some basics on anaesthesia.
Basic surgery. Neutering makes up the majority of general practice rabbit surgery. In this talk, we aim to show you simple surgical techniques that work. We’ll work through some straightforward techniques that make surgery easier and safer, plus the relevant surgical anatomy and some pointers on analgesia.
In this talk, we go through nutrition in more detail. How to construct a rabbit diet and explain this to owners, the effects of good and bad nutrition on rabbit health and disease, as well as covering the effect of diet on urinary health.
The course each contain a video lecture followed by a multiple choice test. Upon completion a personalised certificate will be issued.
This bundle is worth approximately 4 hours of CPD.
