Wildlife medicine is a growing field. Thousands of injured wildlife are being brought to clinics for medical attention each year. While the majority of treatment needs to be carried out at specific clinics that are properly permitted, small animal veterinarians are legally allowed to provided emergency care to stabilize patients prior to transfer or even euthanize critically ill animals. The purpose of this course is to educate small animal vets on the rules and regulations surrounding treating wildlife and provide them with basic triage protocols that they can use to stabilize injured wildlife that presents in their clinic.
