About the course

An exciting course constructed by BARTA, run in partnership with BEVA. To equip Large Animal vets with the knowledge, skills and competencies to be an effective responder to emergencies involving Large Animals, from road traffic incidents through to animals stuck in slurry pits, rivers, ditches and bogs, to provide optimum personnel safety and animal welfare. Knowing what to do, and what not to do, when attending Large Animal emergencies is essential for all practitioners. The course is benchmarked against the national training standards of the Fire and Rescue Service, delivering structured training in triage, tactical planning, sedation and anaesthesia, first aid, casualty management, resuscitation and euthanasia, focussing on what is different at rescue scenes compared to everyday practice. The qualification VLAR-2 fulfils the requirements of the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme Awards. Don’t miss the opportunity!  Early registration is recommended as course places are limited and eLearning is opened up on Tuesday 20th February, 6 weeks before the workshop is scheduled.
