How Does Medication And Veterinary Treatment Affect our Dogs?

The Canine Pharmacology home study Certificate course is designed to further your understanding of common canine diseases and how medication is used to address them, as part of an effective canine care approach. This is a course designed for dog owners and professionals, to enhance understanding of the dogs in our care and their specific veterinary treatments when required. 

The course considers the law of veterinary diagnosis, treatment and canine health, along with anatomy and physiology. We look at medications, how they travel and are absorbed into the dog’s body and mind, along with how medications are designed to act within the body, to re-balance a dog suffering from disease.

This Canine Pharmacology home study course is designed to act within the law, to raise awareness and understanding of how dogs are treated by qualified veterinarians for many common physical and psychological disorders. We also explore the importance of behaviour modification alongside most short-term pharmacology treatments for behaviour and environment related problems.

If you are interested in the overall health and well-being of dogs, working with them in any capacity or looking to carry out canine focused Continued Professional Development, this course is for you.
