VETS20015 Foundations of Animal Health 2 adds to the understandings developed in VETS20014 Foundations of Animal Health 1, to consider the principles of animal welfare and its management, the genetic basis of animal health and performance and the fundamental principles of infectious disease control.
A case study approach will introduce students to established health and welfare management practices of companion and production animals in Australia, and will reinforce understandings of the role of welfare, genetics, nutrition, housing and infectious disease control in the maintenance of health populations of animals.
Students successfully completing this course should develop a broad appreciation of the importance of sound management practices in the maintenance of healthy populations of animals, and the role of veterinary and animal scientists in ensuring the health of populations of animals.
