Course Summary
Course Details
Fees & How to Enrol

This course has been designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of the nutritional value of different kinds of pet food, and how best to match these values to their own animals, in order to meet their nutritional needs.

Over two sections, students will gain an in-depth knowledge as to how producers make use of packaging and labelling, and how animals react to their food, depending on nutritional needs and time of life.

This Advanced Short Course is perfect for learners who want to delve deeper into this area, as well as those already working in the animal care sector looking to further their professional development.

You’ll receive your first unit as soon as you enrol, so you can start whenever you want, and progress through the course at your own pace, studying when and where you choose.
