The following on-site courses/seminars are offered by MMVS

Medical training of marine mammals

Too often the training part is discarded by veterinarians, but it is absolutely mandatory to have a correct and safe approach of the animals to be able to attend them correctly. This is still lacking in a lot of facilities, particularly in the zoo world. This course reviews the medical behaviours used in marine mammals – how to train them step by step and explains, in common terms, what is the medical advantage gained from it with lots of examples.
