What does the course involve?

Our ‘An introduction to PetWise MOT’s’ workshop provides a full day’s training.

The focus for the day is on the basic structure of a PetWise MOT and attendees will leave with the knowledge and skills to deliver these consultations successfully in their own veterinary practice.

It is delivered by our team of learning and development experts and Community and Education Vet Nurses through a mixture of:

  • Group discussion
  • case studies
  • video
  • practical exercises
  • feedback
  • self-reflection and action planning

By the end of the day all attendees should be able to:

  • Explain the background of the Animal Welfare Act 2006.
  • Describe the five Welfare Needs of cats, dogs and rabbits in detail.
  • Describe the basic structure and content of a PetWise MOT.
  • Understand the communication skills required to effectively influence clients.
  • Recognise the steps they may need to take in order to effectively deliver a PetWise MOT service.

Who is the workshop suitable for? 

PetWise MOTs are suitable for all clinical members of the practice team however we recognise due to the nature of their roles, this workshop may be of more interest to the nursing teams and those with a keen interest in front of house duties and engaging clients with the needs of their pets.

While the structure of these consultations is transferable to all species our workshop will focus on cats, dogs and rabbits as the main companion animals in the UK and will be of particular interest to delegates working in small animal practice.

As well as the knowledge and skills acquired at the workshop, delegates also have the option to purchase ‘My PetWise MOT Record’ books for their clients and marketing materials for their practice.
