“Exotic and Pocket Pet Veterinary Husbandry”


An Update of Clinical Research on Panthers in the USA

 -- 2 CE credit hours --

The first lecture will cover the housing and environmental needs of specific species. Common diseases and rule outs for each species will be discussed, as well as the effective design of an exotic animal history form.


The second lecture will discuss how to establish methodology for surveillance of wildlife through various ecosystems utilizing a minimal impact system.  It will address determination of wildlife diversity by correlating data from various locations using trail cam technology. We will also discuss how to determine whether or not large felids have re-established populations in ranges where they were previously known to be extinct.
