Top tips for first opinion exotics consultations

Bromsgrove School, Worcester Road, Bromsgrove Worcestershire, B61 7DU

This evening is intended to be interactive and broad-ranging; in essence, the audience will decide the content of the evening! Drawing on 30 years of exotic pet and zoo practice, the presenter will attempt to teach the basic tricks and tips to help you survive the exotic pet consult slipped into your busy evening clinic, as well as some of the more advanced techniques and investigations if you want to take things a little further.

No species (bar cats and dogs) out of bounds! Please let us know what you want to hear and we will build as much as possible into the evening.

Learning objectives

- to be more confident when faced with an exotic species.
- to have a basic approach based on first principles of medicine.
- to understand some of the approaches to investigating some more complex problems for owners who don’t want to be referred.
