About this course

Sheep and goats as pets – are you prepared?

There are now significant numbers of small ruminants kept as pets in the UK, with owners wishing to seek veterinary advice and help as they would other pets. This course aims to help clinicians from a variety of practice backgrounds approach and treat these cases more confidently.

This webinar will cover some of the most common problems encountered in general practice with small ruminants (sheep and goats). Husbandry and the common owner pitfalls, as well as legalities of keeping these pets will also be covered.

Why do this course?
You will develop greater confidence in diagnosing and treating pet small ruminants.
