All you need to know about Bearded Dragons
Lecturer: Sean McCormack, BSc (Hons), MVB, MRCVS
This webinar aims to equip vets and vet nurses alike with all they need to know about one of the UK's most popular pet reptile species, the Bearded Dragon. From natural history, captive husbandry and the importance of correct nutrition, through to more advanced clinical conditions, anaesthesia and surgical considerations, we will cover all you need to know to advise on and treat these popular pets. Reptiles are unique in their anatomy and physiology compared with our more common mammalian patients, and can be daunting if you're unfamiliar with them. Starting with basic biology, we will explore the common husbandry and nutrition mistakes that can lead to clinical disease. Then we will focus on practical diagnosis, history taking and treatment options for the most common clinical presentations.
