IntroductionThis chapter revises basic handling techniques, which are essential for the safety of both patient and personnel during general animal care and nursing procedures. In addition, the chapter covers kennel and cattery construction and management, quarantine kennels and the cleaning of kennels - all extremely important in the prevention of the spread of infectious disease.
Additional information is supplied with regard to the PETS travel scheme. Although this is not a part of the Veterinary Nursing Syllabus (yet!), it is nevertheless relevant to student veterinary nurses (particularly those with reception duties, since a large number of clients are making enquiries concerning this subject).
