The Donkey Sanctuary Ireland

The Donkey Sanctuary Ireland: A Practical Reference Guide

The Donkey Sanctuary Ireland have together a practical health and welfare reference guide to help vets, nurses, and attending welfare / agricultural colleagues to manage donkeys and their care effectively. The guide homes in on the areas that are differential to other equines; in that respect it is useful for non-donkey specialists at all levels. The Donkey Academy is also a fantastic resource offering free training resources and is being added to all the time.

Grad Track Graduate Programme

GradTrack is a joint collaborative programme designed by SPVS and VDS Training, consisting of specialized workshops to help equip graduates with the tools and knowledge to develop their non-clinical skills. Being an effective veterinary practitioner requires satisfying a range of stakeholders we come into contact with as part of our daily work, including our patients, clients, employers, colleagues and ourselves.

Whilst you may not believe it yet, a lack of clinical knowledge and skill isn’t what causes vets the most ‘stress’ during their career – it is gaps in non-clinical skills. GradTrack is a unique course created to address these gaps from the outset of your career, equipping you to purposefully pursue the breadth of outcomes required to become a successful veterinary practitioner.
