More about Veterinary & Animal Care

Veterinary studies from ancient times to today

The history of veterinary studiesAs early as ancient Egyptian and Indian times, literature has recorded veterinary medicine activity, referencing both hospitals for people and hospitals for animals.

In a similar fashion to medical doctors swearing to practice medicine ethically, veterinarians swear an oath that they will use their skills and knowledge for the overall benefit of society, by protecting the health and needs of every species of animal and also environmental protection, food safety, and public health.

Advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques are available for many species these days, greatly aiding modern veterinary techniques. Animals today can receive advanced medical, dental, and surgical care, including insulin injections, root canals, hip replacements, cataract extractions, and pacemakers.

Careers in Animal Care

When you are evaluating a possible career with working with animals, there is a vast range of jobs that should considered. The range of jobs may, in fact, be larger than you initially think.

Working in the animal care industry may see you working with dogs & cats, in a horse-related career, or with animal charities; alternatively, you may find yourself working with wildlife, in a veterinary career, a marine career, in zoo or safari parks, in addition to the many other types of careers working with animals.

An animal care course or veterinary training will increase delegates’ chances of developing a career working with animals and will give valuable, practical animal care experience.

Equine care courses

Equine Care CoursesThe equine / horse industry supports the needs of horses and assists their breeders, riders and trainers. Practitioners in this field help the horses experience optimal health and long life.

Horses around the world usually live outside, but with access to shelter from the elements. Shelter can often mean a barn, a stable, a shed or at least a shelter. Horses require room to exercise and run, as well as shelter both from wind and rain. They must have access to clean fresh water at all times, and access to adequate forage such as grass or hay. Horses grow a heavy coat of hair in the winter to keep warm and will usually stay warm if they are well-fed and are allowed access to shelter.

A well as equine veterinarians, there are plenty of considerations towards a horse’s daily life. Equine courses can help your stable staff in many areas, for example:

  • Ensuring better pastures
  • Fencing and pen structure, maintenance and repair
  • Barn and stables
  • Feeding and nutrition
  • Grooming
  • Hoof care and shoeing
  • Leg care and bandaging
