About Animal Care

Do you consider yourself to be a bit of a Doctor Dolittle? Do you like animals better than people?

You may not know how to talk to the animals but you can certainly help them by studying an online course in animal care. Basic animal courses will take you through a range of topics, including learning about different animal types, animal anatomy, animal health and first aid, and animal welfare.

There are hundreds of different dog breeds and they all have different characteristics and needs. You may know the difference between a Staffordshire bull terrier and an English cocker spaniel, but would you know how to care for them differently? Why not learn through one of our online courses.
