Description

We help vet students get EMS credits without travelling, by presenting self-paced online courses in collaboration with wildlife veterinarians, ecologists, and game reserves in South Africa.

About Wildlife Vet Online:

These courses are designed to be online versions of selected wildlife medicine experiences available in South Africa. We’ve collaborated with projects to create a practical road trip in the form of the Wildlife Vet Experience, an exclusive package just for training vets and vet nurses that is both affordable and of high quality. It’s built around our principles of collaboration, credibility, and accessibility by connecting communities and exceptional projects and experts while not sacrificing some of the fantastic food and accommodation that South Africa has to offer. In this way, we’re able to provide both practical and theoretical instruction, covering veterinary treatment as well as sanctuary management and wildlife conservation.

  • Animal Behaviour
  • Animal Identification and Tracking Techniques
  • Anti-Poaching
  • Antibiotics and Supportive Medication
  • Capture Equipment and Methods
  • Conservation and Wildlife Education in the Community
  • Game Reserve Management
  • Modern Conservation
  • Orphan Rearing
  • Parasites
  • Ranger and Vet Stories
  • Rhino Dehorning, poaching, etc.
  • Safety Practices
  • Sanctuaries, Rehabilitation, and Rescue Centres
  • Tranquilizers, Sedatives, and Opioids

    Another fantastic live event! It was a great opportunity to virtually follow Dr. Rogers into the field and get first hand insight into this very unique experience. Elephant translocation is a coordinated and complex procedure- amazing to see wildlife population management put into practice. The team also does a great job of clearly explaining the reasoning of the process. Can’t wait for the next live event with Painted Dog TV!
