Data: The course will be given at the veterinary faculty on October 8, November 4 and November 5. These days have a 08:30 till 17:00 program with many opportunities to talk and hands on sessions with experts.
Tijdstip: 08:30 till 17:00
Programma: The first day will focus on the zoological aspects of herpetology, in which the diversity, the anatomy and physiology of several organ systems as well as evolutionary and developmental topics will be discussed. The aim is to provide a good overview of amphibian and reptile biology. At the end of the day you will be able to describe the anatomy and important physiological processes and the diversity of reptiles and amphibians in the wild and captive care.
During the second day, herpetology experts will teach you specialized skills, care and husbandry related to these animals. Anesthesia, chemical restraint and pain management will be central topics. Dedicated pathologists and clinicians will give you gross pathology and pathophysiologic insights into the diseases of reptiles and amphibians. You will be able to gain an increased understanding of the gross lesions, as well as the presenting clinical signs, pathogenetic mechanisms as well as the appropriate differential diagnosis for a wide range of diseases. Legal aspects and policy matters will be included.
You will benefit from interactive lectures, group assignments, practical’s and expert talks. We invite participants to present and discuss their own cases (day 2) or actively ask about the presentation of certain topics. Participants will receive a certificate after completion of the whole course.
The course will be taught in English.
