eCPD Tutorial – unlimited lifetime access!

 

 

Description

Course Summary

As a prey species, rabbits do not show the same clinical signs of pain as we would observe in cats and dogs.  Pain can often be missed or not observed until in the latter stages, which will have a knock on effect on other body systems as well as the rabbit’s welfare.

 

This 45 online tutorial looks at what may cause pain to rabbits and the signs they show.  We will then proceed to discuss analgesia options - both medications and alternative therapies.  Finally, we will finish with how to assess a rabbits quality of life.
