Description

Class Experience

- Students will be able to complete a Species Fact Sheet for each possible "pet"
- Students will understand ethical issues that prevent some of these animals from being great pets
- Students will know the most common medical issues seen in pets of listed species
- Students will know how to prevent the most common medical issues in listed species
- Students will be able to add to their knowledge of veterinary care because unlike pet dogs, every single exotic animal we bring into captivity has different care than other species.
I am an Animal Scientist after graduating NC State in 2010 with a Bachelors Degree in Animal Science Pre-Vet with a minor and additional concentrations. I worked in veterinary medicine and animal science in many veterinary clinics and at NC State ranging from 2004-2014 when I moved into education of animal species. I worked in the only Avian and Small Mammal Exotic board certified practice in my region. I worked in the only emergency clinic capable of seeing avian and exotic mammals, reptiles, and amphibians, in my area. I am prepared for this course.

None. This is a veterinary course. Injuries may be seen sometimes. For graphic photos, students will be warned and allowed to close their eyes if they wish but the images will be age appropriate. If reproductive questions are asked, proper terminology will be used and for in-depth questioning I refer to parents.
- The vast majority of knowledge comes from my years working in veterinary care at emergency and exotic clinics.
- The exotic clinic I worked was the only Board Certified Avian and Exotic clinic in the region 
- More knowledge comes from my years obtaining my Animal Science Bachelor degree.
- Some information will come from American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) for Avian, Exotic Mammals, Reptiles, and Amphibians
- the AVMA, CVMA, and other Veterinary Associations World Wide provide the most reliable veterinary care laws and regulations
