What is Animal Husbandry?
Animal Husbandry is the science of caring for and breeding animals. This includes information like diet, habitat, and behavior of a specific species. For example, this helps when picking and introducing a new pet into your home.
How do you stay up to date in the Veterinary World?
At Animal Hospital of Chesterfield our team works to stay current on the latest information about the best way to care for all of our patients. We take into account the special needs of each species we see as well as what is best for each individual patient. By becoming members of organizations such as the Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians, attending conferences, and participating in online veterinary communities our doctors and technicians keep abreast of the newest recommendations in the care of our exotic patients as well as traditional companion animals. These topics can span current recommendations for a habitat, current trends in diet and supplements, environmental enrichment, socialization, and more !
Where can I find information on these trends and cutting edge techniques?
Under our resources section you can find veterinary approved blogs, videos, and articles. You can also look at our social media pages on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for current trends and updates, cute patients, and informational articles.
