Course Focus and Learning Objectives

VetCE on Demand: Rabbits in General Practice - Breaking the “Exotic” Spell utilizes the archive of a live presentation under the same name.

This course is beneficial for all team members of a general practice which opens its doors to rabbits. It examines the rewards of serving rabbit-owning clients. The course emphasizes defining and following each team member's role and of working in unison, with the understanding that these roles and responsibilities can evolve as the team gains experience. Next, it examines building a network that comprises of other general practices that have ventured into rabbit medicine, veterinary specialists, and emergency practices that might be called upon to provide after-hours care for our rabbit patients, as well as rescue organizations/shelters. Lastly it outlines how to maximize the odds of successful outcomes of anesthesia and surgical procedures.

At the end of the course participants should be able to:
