The Certificate in Animal Diseases at QLS Level 3 Quality Licence Scheme is designed to help animal owners determine what symptoms may suggest a serious illness, and therefore warrant calling a vet. The course will help you recognise a disease and determine an appropriate course of action to undertake for diagnosis. If you want to understand animal health issues and diseases, this course is an excellent starting point. The course will explore key topics such as health care of animals, veterinary diagnostic sample collection, implementing animal health care programmes, providing nutritional advice and support for animals and domestic animal toxicology.
Research into disease is based on clinical, physiological, and epidemiological evidence. When an illness or disorder needs to be established conclusively, an objective diagnosis in the laboratory should be obtained. Especially in the case of infectious diseases it is particularly important that the final diagnosis is based on sufficient aetiological evidence. It allows the owners of animals to understand and identify symptoms of diseases that can impact their animals so that timely intervention can take place.

The course provided plenty of resources and reading material. This was very useful when it came to referring back to the lesson and preparing for the exam.
Very good, overall
I was recommended this course by the animal care shelter I volunteer at. It was very good!
The training was excellent and a really good learning experience for an animal carer like myself. It gave me an overview of assisting in the health care of animals. I was taught how to examine animals for health issues.
As someone who works in a veterinary facility, I found the contents of this course highly beneficial. I received a practical understanding of key modules such as health care of animals, support for animals, nutritional advice and animal toxicology.
