Reptile keeping is becoming more popular but unfortunately, poor nutrition and a lack of husbandry requirements can lead to the development of common clinical conditions.

These conditions may include nutritional secondary hyperparathyroidism, obesity, hypovitaminosis A, steatisis, reproductive disorders, visceral gout, thiamine deficiency and pyramiding.

This half day course will cover the ideal nutritional requirements of commonly kept reptiles (e.g Herman's Tortoise, Corn Snake, Bearded Dragon, Gecko), in order to assist the veterinary nurse in educating your clients' and ultimately to aid in the prevention of nutritional disease.
