Triage of common of wildlife casualties in practice

18 Nov 2022
Gallery Suite 15-16

British wildlife will often be presented to small animal veterinary practices by members of the public for emergency care. As veterinary professionals we have a duty of care to these animals. The basic principles of emergency care for the vast majority of casualties are the same as those provided to domestic species. However, when faced with a species you are unfamiliar with it can be quite daunting. The aim of this session is to provide support for vets and nurses and instill confidence on how to handle, triage and provide first aid to a range of British wildlife.

  • 1. To confidently handle a range of British wildlife
  • 2. To be able to triage wildlife casualties
  • 3. To be able to provide emergency first aid to wildlife casualties
  • 4. To be able to make decisions regarding euthanasia of wildlife casualties
