Just Exotics aims to help professionals broaden their exotic species knowledge. 

A new website has been launched to help veterinary professionals expand their knowledge of exotic animals.

Developed by exotics vet Sonya Miles, justexotics.co.uk aims to help both those starting a career with exotic species and those looking to expand their existing knowledge.

A Just Exotics spokesperson said: “Our content is suitable for vets, nurses and students, some of our content may also be helpful for clients and has been specifically designed to be convenient and affordable. 

“More content will be added on a regular basis, and please, if there is something you specifically want covered, drop us a message, and will we do our best to make sure it becomes available.”

The webinars cost between £15 and £55 (depending on the length), and include presentations by Sonya herself, Eliabetta Mancinelli, Agata Witkowska, Louise Ash, Sarah Pellett and many others, with more being uploaded regularly. CPD certificates upon complete of the content are also provided.

Vets asked to opt-in to Scottish SPCA fostering programme

News Story 1
 The Scottish SPCA is encouraging veterinary practices to opt into its new fostering programme, by agreeing to register foster animals when approached by one of the foster carers.

The programme goes live in August 2021, and will help to rehabilitate animals under the Scottish SPCA's care until they are able to be properly re-homed. The programme will help the animals to receive care and attention in a stable and happy home environment, as some animals do not cope with a rescue and re-homing centre environment as well as others.

Specific information for veterinary practices on the new programme can be found at www.scottishspca.org/veterinarysurgeons
