Common Conditions in Uncommon Species

Many vets and nurses who are not familiar with exotics panic when they are presented with one. But if you go back to basics and think about it logically, you will find that it is much easier than you expected. In this webinar Madonna Livingstone goes through some common conditions in such species as rodents, reptiles and exotic birds. The webinar features detailed case studies complete with diagnosis and treatment options. Madonna gives practical advice and shares resources that will help vets and nurses in practice to provide appropriate care for an exotic pet.

My Approach to the Anorexic Rabbit

Despite the fact that rabbits are the 3rd most popular pet in the UK, they are still classified as exotics. In this webinar Madonna Livingstone shares her experience in treating rabbits and gives practical advice to vets and nurses on how to transfer their skills from dogs and cats to the less familiar species. Anorexia in rabbits is a real medical emergency. It can be caused by anything, and the animal can die very quickly. An understanding of basic rabbit anatomy and physiology in conjunction with appropriate care, prompt diagnosis and treatment are essential for a successful outcome. It is also vital to remember that anorexia is a symptom, not a diagnosis. Madonna goes through detailed case studies explaining the causes and effects of anorexia in this species.
