This two day, 14 hour course reviews current industry standard techniques and drugs, and reviews their effect on animals. The course reviews anesthetics, DEA scheduled drugs, anatomy, verification of death, and personnel safety. Appropriate techniques and anesthesia for different species are covered, as well as approaches for handling feral, fractious or aggressive animals. A hands-on, practical portion of the training will provide the opportunity to demonstrate gentle and humane restraint methods required to perform Intramuscular, intravenous, intraperitoneal, and intracardiac injections. Particular emphasis is given to issues surrounding compassion stress and their impact on workers and the organization.
