How to treat the exotic patient
Her 12 years of animal physiotherapy and 17 years of being a qualified veterinary nurse, has meant she has had some interesting patients to treat over the years. As a result, she has become well versed in building a strategy to approach taking on unusual species.
Donna is delivering the CPD, which is 6 hours, in Bracknell on Saturday 28th October 2017. It is best suited for student or qualified Animal/veterinary physiotherapists, who are looking to be able to handle the unusual cases. It is the second time for this lecture to run and has been requested again as it was so well received. Its is ran in conjunction with TCAP
Many species are covered, but the aim of the course is to teach you how to approach the investigation of the new patient type, so that you will be able to feel confident when anything comes to you.There are many things to consider when starting any new case, but with new species comes new things to consider when working out the problems the patient faces in their life, how to know if they are in pain, and how to get the patient to do the exercise program you need to set. And also what exercises do you need to set! There will be detail for Rabbits and some practical time, as these are the most common exotic species. They are also a fast growing popular pet. They are becoming seen as house companions more and more and so the desire to have them treated with all the same level of car as a dog, is growing.
Donna has had great success treating many species.
