This unit consists of four modules. The first, on animal welfare covers key concepts in animal welfare and their application. The second examines the application of knowledge of reproduction and lactation in a range of domestic animal systems. The third focuses on the cause, impact, treatment and prevention of animal diseases including exotic and zoonotic diseases. The fourth examines basic principles in toxicology and deals with the pharmacology and toxicology of the major chemical groups used in agriculture, and the major intoxications seen in animals.
