Knowledge and skills for animal welfare operations
Neutering feral cats and dogs at home and abroad is an extremely important service for all affected animals and their unborn offspring. Many young veterinarians sign up for animal welfare missions in the hope of being able to work and learn practically on the animal. However, it is questionable if insufficiently trained beginners perform actions on animals in need, which they have not yet learned enough.
A solid basic training prior to an animal protection operation is therefore mandatory and is the subject of this further training. This includes a theoretical part in which the veterinarians learn valuable information about the operation in animal protection. Especially abroad, the external circumstances are often adverse, there is a lack of narcotics, sutures and drugs. The knowledge of alternatives is then decisive.
In the same way, hygiene regulations must be observed despite a lack of materials. Neutering is the most important veterinary activity in the protection of animals abroad. For this purpose, the animals must first be checked manually for pregnancies or possible uterine inflammations. At the same time, however, it is important to assess the entire animal and to initiate any further treatments, such as the application of antiparasitics or a wound toilet for injuries.
We also offer interested veterinarians the opportunity to learn the practical work with veterinarians who are experienced in animal protection. In the context of an open practical course all important skills, in particular also the neutering at dogs and cats, are practiced, so that the trained veterinarians become applicable in the future in animal protection actions at home and abroad.
Since the practical training places are limited, applicants must apply for such a training place.
