In recent years, small furry patients such as rodents and other exotic mammals are presenting to veterinary clinics more often and for more challenging procedures and care. Nursing these patients attentively and effectively contributes significantly to successful treatment and, in particular, peri- and post-operative survival.

Both qualified and student veterinary nurses looking to expand their knowledge of the nursing requirements of the more common small furries are welcome to attend. You will look at:

  • Small furry husbandry, handling and hospitalisation
  • Anatomy and common clinical conditions
  • Clinical techniques and parameters (feeding, venous access, fluid therapy, pharmacology)
  • Safe and successful anaesthesia techniques, tips & tricks
