|Subject Overview:||Applications in Animal Health 1 provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the principles of animal health in individual animals and in populations of animals. Each of the six determinants of health ( genetics, environment, nutrition, welfare, infectious disease and exposure to toxic agents) is explored with reference to authentic case studies. Appreciation of the multifactorial nature of health determination is then developed as students apply their understanding to cases that require integration of multiple principles in the analysis of animal health issues. Through industry based placements as well as case based syndicate work, students apply their understanding of animal health principles to the examination and analysis of animal production industries of importance both within Australia and internationally.|
