Vet Welfare Standards

We run workshops for Chinese zoo-based vets to improve their clinical skills and introduce them to the latest animal welfare concepts and specialist veterinary techniques.

We offer veterinary workshops in collaboration with The Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at the University of Edinburgh, and the China Association of Zoological Gardens.

Clinical skills training focuses on the importance of clinical competency to improve the experience of the patient and reduce stress in a clinical setting. All training is delivered using non-animal models, and trainers discuss the importance of reducing, refining and replacing animal use in education where possible.
