About the webinar:

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.
