City & Guilds Level 2 Certificate in Assisting Veterinary Surgeons in the Monitoring of Animal Patients Under Anaesthesia and Sedation
Whilst it is recognised that the monitoring of anaesthesia of companion animals is best carried out by a qualified veterinary surgeon or veterinary nurse, this is not always possible in every circumstance. It is therefore important that lay staff, who may be called upon to assist, are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills needed to do so in a safe, professional manner.
Developed in partnership with Lantra and with encouragement and support from the Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons (SPVS), this City & Guilds qualification is ideal for lay staff or veterinary care assistants (VCAs) involved in assisting veterinary surgeons with the monitoring of companion animals under anaesthesia and sedation.
