Working with animals is not always warm and fuzzy. If you want a career in Veterinary, you have to take the good with the bad. Caring for animals, particularly the sick can be emotionally draining unless you have the skills required to perform your job professionally.

If you love being around animals and would love to turn your passion into a career, then the Advanced Diploma in Veterinary Support Assistant – Level 3 course is perfect for you.

The course will give learners a firm grounding on the essential skills of first aid, understanding basic anatomy, learning pet psychology, handling and restraining animals and working in a veterinary team.

As much as you aspire to work closely with animals, the Advanced Diploma in Veterinary Support Assistant – Level 3 will distinguish the reality. Individuals will learn how to cope when making emotional decisions or when dealing with emergency situations. The course covers key topics on veterinary practices, animal psychology, and dealing with animals in stress and pain and advanced animal handling.
