Description

Work with animals? Need to treat disease? Treating and preventing ill health in animals is important for all people who work with them. Learn how diseases are classified, to recognise signs and symptoms of common diseases and how to treat these diseases and wounds. This course will also introduce methods used to prevent ill health developing. Ideally, students will have completed Animal Husbandry I before beginning this course. COURSE STRUCTURE There are ten lessons as follows:
  1. Introduction To Animal Health
  2. Signs & Symptoms Of Diseases
  3. Disease Classification
  4. Causes & Diagnosis of Diseases
  5. Treatment Of Diseases
  6. Inflammation
  7. Fever & Immunity

  • Analyse physical indicator symptoms of ill health in animals.
  • Determine the taxonomic class of animal pests and diseases.
  • Explain the diagnostic characteristics of the main types of animal pathogenic micro-organisms.
  • Explain the methods used in the treatment of pests and diseases in farm animals.
  • Explain the role of inflammation, including its symptoms and causes, in animals.
  • Explain the biological processes which affect and control the immune system in animals.
  • Explain the biological processes which affect and control tissue repair in animals.
  • Determine procedures for the management of wounds to animals, on a farm.
  • Explain the processes involved in cellular change in animals.
  • Diagnose simple health problems in farm animals.
WHAT THE COURSE COVERS Here are just some of the things you will be doing:


A SOLID INTRODUCTION TO ANIMAL HEALTH

You will learn to assess and describe common diseases in animals, and how to identify appropriate treatments for these diseases, conditions or injuries. Specific topics include Signs & Symptoms of Diseases , Disease Classification, Causes of Disease, Inflammation, Fever and Immunity, Tissue Repair, Wounds and Cell changes (e.g. death, cancers etc).It is useful to complete Animal Husbandry I before attempting this course. This course partially overlaps on Animal Health Care, but on balance these courses complementeach other -there is benefit in doing both.

  • List criteria used to assess the health status, including ill-health, of animals.
  • Describe the different causes of ill-health in animals.
  • Explain the methods used to prevent ill-health in animals.
  • Write a standard procedure for a routine health examination of a chosen farm animal.
  • Describe the symptoms of ill-health in animals.
  • Compare the causes of two symptomatically similar health problems for a specified farm animal.
  • Diagnose a health problem from a given set of symptoms.
  • Distinguish, using labelled illustrations, between different taxonomic classes of animal pest and disease organisms.
  • Describe identifying characteristics of four different disease carrying agents of specified farm animals.
  • Classify commonly occurring pests and diseases of three different animals, into their taxonomic classes.
  • Describe the characteristics of viruses, using illustrations and a report.
  • Describe the characteristics of bacteria, using illustrations and a report.
  • Describe the characteristics of protozoa, using illustrations and a report.
  • Describe the characteristics of parasites, using illustrations and a report.
  • Describe the characteristics of nutritional disorders, using illustrations and a report.
  • Analyse the relevance of ten specified factors, to determining the health of a chosen species of farm animal.
  • Describe the veterinary treatments available over the counter for on-farm use.
  • Explain the vaccination programs used to treat two different specifies of farm animal.
  • Describe the applications and techniques used for dips, to control external parasites in a specified farm animal.
  • List the essential items for a First Aid Kit for a specified farm animal.
  • Write guidelines for general procedures to follow when nursing sick farm animals.
  • List the procedures employed in quarantine, using a chosen animal as an example.
  • Describe the procedures for slaughtering a diseased ruminant in order to conduct a post-mortem examination.
  • Prepare an illustrated, one page report on the post-mortem procedures of a ruminant.
  • Compare different methods used to control a specified disease in animals.
  • Identify a suitable method of control for ten different, specified pests and diseases.
  • Differentiate between factors which cause inflammation in animals.
  • Develop a checklist for analysing inflammation.
  • Explain the inflammatory response.
  • Compare the different methods used to control inflammation in animals.
  • Describe the function of the immune system in animals.
  • List the agents which can cause fevers in animals.
  • Explain the biology of fevers in a specified case study of an animal species.
  • Explain the methods used in treating fevers in animals.
  • Explain at least five factors which influence immune response in animals.
  • Explain the characteristics of the immune system in a chosen animal species.
  • Describe the composition of tissues at different body sites, in terms of susceptibility to different types of internal and external damage.
  • Compare the characteristics of different types of tissue damage.
  • List factors, in terms of both rate of, and quality of repair; which influence tissue repair.
  • Explain the biological processes, which occur as damaged tissue heals in animals.
  • Compare the different effects of wounding, including psychological, physiological and anatomical, to different parts of a specified animals body.
  • Explain the different biological processes which occur following wounding, including: tissue repair and infection.
  • Develop a checklist for the treatment of wounds in animals.
  • List an appropriate treatment for different types of wounds to different species of animals.
  • Describe post care treatment of the wounds as discussed above.
  • Determine the potential causes of wounding of animals.
