Supreme Petfoods’ free virtual training it provides about care of small pets is now accredited by SQP regulator Vetpol.
The content has been developed by Supreme and veterinary specialists and vet nurses with a specific focus on the care of small pets. In total there are 30 hours of free continuing professional development (CPD) that can be used by SQPs or veterinary professionals as part of their mandatory requirement.
Some of Supreme’s webinars are designed to meet the specific needs of veterinary professionals and those topics include anaesthesia, drug dosages for small pets and treatment of common clinical conditions.
For SQPs and those in the pet trade looking to build expertise, there are a number of nutritional topics that will help them give pet owners advice on maintaining the health of their pets.
Supreme marketing manager Claire Hamblion says the accreditation reflects the quality of the materials available.
“It’s long been our focus to produce high quality CPD,” she said. “The specialists delivering this training include Molly Varga, Jo Hinde, Charly Pignon, Jo Hedley, Anna Meredith and Livia Benato – all names that veterinary professionals will recognise for their passion for improving veterinary care for small pets. Now with Vetpol’s accreditation, Companion Animal SQPs can also ensure that they benefit from CPD that’s specific to small pets.”
Supreme joins a line-up of companies offering free CPD, accredited by Vetpol across a variety of species.
Vetpol co-founder Caroline Johnson said she was delighted to add the Supreme content: “We all know that small pets have very specific needs and that their health and welfare is very dependent on the knowledge and commitment of their owners.
“These free and high-quality training resources will help to improve the knowledge of the people who are best placed to ensure that pet owners have the help and support they need to care for their pets.”
