Small mammal nutrition & Balanced nutrition for birds and reptiles

Swindon

Aims

Day 1 - Small mammal nutrition
In this module you will learn about the commonly, and some of the uncommonly encountered exotic mammalian species (eg rabbits, rodents, ferrets and a brief discussion of sugar gliders, small primates etc) and their basic gastrointestinal anatomy and physiology. The aetiology of nutritional diseases in these species and how best to avoid them by supplying optimally balanced diets will be discussed. Clinically relevant areas of other organ systems will also be described eg calcium metabolism and the urinary tract in rabbits. By the end of this module you will feel comfortable in approaching clinical nutritional support for the generally ill patient as well as those suffering specific disease conditions. Cases from the speaker's practice will be drawn on to illustrate these issues and you are invited to bring your own cases, with as much information as possible, on the day, or to send them through ahead of time.

Day 2 - Balanced nutrition for birds and reptiles

The second exotic module will cover the nutritional requirements of birds such as psittacines; raptors, other commonly presented wild UK birds and backyard chickens. To allow you to feel more comfortable with a variety of reptiles, species such as terrestrial and freshwater chelonia; snakes; representative species of commonly encountered lizard species (herbivore, omnivore and carnivore) will also be discussed. Understanding the basic gastrointestinal anatomy and physiology of these species will help you understand the aetiology of the nutritional diseases which these species experience and how to prevent them with optimal diets. Clinically relevant areas of other organ systems will be described including Vitamin D metabolism and UV light. Cases from the speaker's practice will be drawn on to illustrate these issues and you are invited to bring your own cases, with as much information as possible, on the day, or to send them through ahead of time.
