Course Description

Becoming familiar with veterinary instruments is an important part of the veterinary nursing curriculum. To become a valuable member of the veterinary team, it is crucial that students learn to recognise individual veterinary instruments, their main function, and their special characteristics. Students are expected to complete case reports.
This short course lists just some of the instruments that are used in veterinary clinics.
