Time is running out to apply for the £5,000 bursary offered by Vétoquinol, the company behind Zylkène.
The bursary is available to a veterinary nurse keen to apply a more wide-ranging approach to his or her work and to his or her practice.
With the deadline of August 10 fast approaching, time is running out for veterinary nurses to submit their applications.
Product manager at Vétoquinol Krystyna Joyce explained: “Veterinary nurses hold a vital position in vet practices and this bursary is intended to help nurses extend their knowledge and further their career in animal behaviour.
“Encouraging practice nurses to undertake training in animal behaviour can significantly benefit both the individual and his or her practice.”
Behavioural training offers a wealth of benefits to veterinary practices and staff, including safer pet handling, improved client loyalty and a more comfortable environment for animals, as well as the opportunity to help increase the clinic’s income.
The bursary covers a full year of the Centre of Applied Pet Ethnology (COAPE) behaviour diploma, which helps professionals further their knowledge of behavioural issues and gives them the skills to deal with situations that may arise during the course of their work.
Those wishing to apply are asked to complete the application form at www.zylkenepet.co.uk/COAPE by August 10, 2014.
