Abstract

This article describes the teaching of animal handling at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh, as part of an animal husbandry course during the first two years of the veterinary curriculum. Basic methods of handling and restraint appropriate for the wide range of animal species that might be encountered in veterinary practice are demonstrated in practical handling classes. Students are given opportunities to practice the techniques under supervision. Additional handling experience is available during extramural studies in animal husbandry at a variety of establishments. Students are formally examined on their ability to handle and restrain animals, and each is required to reach a threshold degree of competence before progressing to the clinical years.
