Practical Management of Recumbent Large Animals

This foundation module is open to a range of people from veterinarians and veterinary nurses to welfare charities or those managing an animal facility.

The practical workshop features techniques that form the cornerstone of preparedness for emergency responders worldwide and is open to those who want to gain a better understanding of assisting large animals in crisis or who are expected to manage recumbent equines or livestock as part of their role.

Highly practical using life-size and realistically weighted mannequins, delegates will learn how to manoeuvre large animals manually and on a glide, plus participate in a range of scenarios developed from real life situations.

On the day you will be guided by one of BARTA’s animal rescue team leaders and benefit from their experience and insight gained attending incidents involving animals working for the Fire and Rescue Service.
