Understanding Medical Conditions and Pain


Course Overview

Although animal trainers can typically recognize the external signs of an animal in serious pain or distress, they are not necessarily aware of what’s going on inside the animal’s body and how it can affect their behavior. This module will discuss common conditions as well as take an in-depth look at pain management strategies and the effects of pain and stress on an animal.

This module has been approved for 1 RACE CEU and 1 CEU from CCPDT, IAABC and KPA.
