Section 2: Module Synopsis

This unit is intended to provide the student with an understanding of biological environmental and physiologic contributions to health and disease. It is designed to develop the student’s understanding of the issues surrounding animal health. It investigates the nature of the disease process and provides an understanding of the management of ill and injured animals using a range of different preventative and treatment methods. It also links to level 2 veterinary microbiology.


Section 3: Outline Syllabus


Maintaining good health in animals

Hygiene and housing, health checks, the role of the immune system, vaccinations, diet, exercise, mental stimulation, stress avoidance/relief.


The management of common diseases and injuries in animals

Causal agents and management of common diseases, parasitic conditions and trauma conditions (including signs, treatment, prevention), first aid techniques and requirements.


Modern diagnostic techniques and treatments

Sample collection, haematology, biochemistry, microscope examination, bacterial examination, immunological examination, radiography, ultrasound. Chemotherapy, ultrasound treatments, types of drug and how they affect body systems.


Safe use of veterinary medicines

Health and safety, relevant legislation, drug categories, classes and schedules, dose calculations, contra-indications, prohibited substances, methods and routes of administration, safe storage, handling and disposal of medicaments.


Section 4: Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this unit a student will have a full understanding of the importance of maintaining good health in animals and the techniques involved. They will have knowledge of major disease causing agents and how to manage them, as well as an understanding of basic first aid techniques. Students will be provided with an up-to-date grasp of the safe use of drugs, as well as comprehensive knowledge of modern diagnostic techniques and treatments.


Section 5: Learning and Teaching Strategy/Methods

Students will achieve their learning outcomes through lectures, practical sessions, seminars and visits. Students will be encouraged to carry out independent research. Visits to veterinary practices, animal hospitals and specialist centres will be used where possible. Guest speakers will be used where appropriate to ensure that content is current and accurate.

Section 6: Assessment

Assessment will be in two parts:

Completion of written coursework (50%); and

Unseen examination (50%).


Section 7: Relationship to Professional Body

None


Section 8: Indicative Reading

Lecturer will advise students of recent publications, reliable current electronic sources, and new editions of books

Section 2: Module Synopsis

This is an introduction to animal management and the principles underpinning the protection of animals in our care. You will study a range of species in different settings including domestic, laboratory, farm and exotic animal species. Particular emphasis is given to the approaches used to evaluate and protect an animal’s well-being and the guidelines that cover animal care. You will be given practical sessions on animal handling, so they can safely and competently handle common domestic species. Practical classes will also investigate animal’s response to environmental challenges as a means of assessing well-being. The unit provides an introduction to the subject which is essential for first year students, and also aims to develop practical skills necessary for working in the industry (in preparation for WBL at level 2).


Section 3: Outline Syllabus

Key concepts in animal welfare and animal protection: 5 Freedoms and 3 Rs. Stress and distress; coping, pain, abnormality, physical and behavioural needs.

Welfare Legislation: Legislation affecting animal welfare in the UK and EU.

Approaches to the measuring of animal welfare: Animal based and systems based assessment of welfare. Approaches based on performance and health, mental well-being and naturalness of environment.

Management of domestic and captive animals: companion animals including dog, cat, horse, rodents, reptiles, amphibians, birds and fish; common laboratory animals; wild mammals in captivity; farm livestock including cattle, pigs, poultry and sheep.


Section 4: Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this unit the student will be able to:

Demonstrate practical skills and knowledge of a range of domestic animals

Understand key concepts underpinning animal welfare issues

Evaluate the methods used to assess animal welfare

Demonstrate knowledge of protection afforded to animals according to their status


Section 5: Learning and Teaching Strategy/Methods

Students will achieve their learning outcomes through participation in lectures, seminars and practical classes. The latter can include animal handling exercises and experimental studies on the effects of conventional housing upon animal behaviour.


Section 6: Assessment

The assessment will take the format of two assignments worth 45% each, an essay and a report, and a practical logbook worth 10%.


Section 7: Relationship to Professional Body

Students may also wish to join University Federation for Animal Welfare
