Animal welfare charity Mayhew pays special recognition to the veterinary profession today by highlighting its training programme
Published on Thursday, 26th April 2018
Tomorrow – Saturday 28th April – is World Vet Day and the London-based charity Mayhew is highlighting its vet training programme to mark the occasion.
The animal welfare charity is understandably proud of its vet training programme – this year, 20 national and international vets will be trained at the charity’s state-of-the-art Community Vet Clinic in Kensal Green, London, which also offers affordable preventive treatment.
‘The vets participating in the training are enabled to not only help the animals, but also to gain an overall understanding of the complexity of animal welfare and population management so that they are able to have a positive impact on the animals they deal with, as well as educating the people involve to help relieve the suffering of animals all over the world,’ said the charity’s Chief Head Vet, Dr Ursula Goetz.
‘We believe that Mayhew’s Veterinary Training Programme enables veterinary professionals to return to their practices, not only with enhanced veterinary skills, but also with a general understanding of animal behaviour.
‘We established our International Veterinary Training Programme to promote safe and secure neutering techniques for animal welfare projects abroad and to encouragement the advancements of dog and cat population management abroad through education.
The training involves insight into pre and post-operative care, protocols and techniques for improved animal handling, efficient sterilisation techniques and pain management.
Dr Constantin Puie participated in the programme earlier this year: ‘I have learnt a great deal during my two-week placement with Mayhew,’ he said. ‘I am looking forward to taking my new knowledge and sharing it with other vets.’
