Rabbits are hard-wired not to show signs of weakness. This makes it very hard for us to know when they are in pain or distressed. It is vital to get pain under control as quickly as possible.
This half day course aims to underpin your knowledge and will focus on the following learning outcomes:
- To recognise typical behavioural and physiological signs of pain in rabbits
- How to use the rabbit grimace scale as a guide for interpreting pain in rabbits as well as looking as it's limitations
- Consider the drugs that can be used in rabbits to manage pain and common side effects
