MSc Wild Animal Health

This world-class specialist Masters Course (with exit points at Certificate and Diploma) has produced over 190 graduates since its inception in 1994. It provides qualified veterinarians with a depth of knowledge of the management of wild animals and epidemiology, treatment and control of the disease.

Over the last 30 years, interventions, for reasons of health, welfare and the conservation, of free-living wild animals have been undertaken with increasing frequency. Specialist veterinary expertise is required in order to assess and control diseases in wildlife.

Emerging infectious diseases are also recognized as a serious hazard both for wild animals and for the domestic animal and human populations that interact with these species. In addition, a large number of wild animal species are kept in captivity; in zoos and in laboratories, which has led to an increased demand for specialist skills and knowledge.... [-]

Introduction

This course provides students with a unique opportunity to take advantage of both Stirling and City University of Hong Kong’s aquaculture expertise. Both institutions have come together to provide this course in aquatic food security that includes animal biology and health, nutrition, food safety, production systems and disease. The course is delivered by the College of Veterinary Medicine, City University Hong Kong with the opportunity for students to undertake their research project in Stirling at the internationally recognised Institute of Aquaculture.

This ground-breaking collaboration will prepare our graduates for a bright future, providing them with the best of both worlds: Stirling’s internationally renowned aquaculture expertise and City University’s new state-of-the-art facilities close to all parts of the South-East Asian market. The demand for aquatic food worldwide is increasing significantly and at the same time, there is pressure for more efficient production and safe food while taking into account the environmental and sustainability issues throughout the entire aquatic food value chain. This programme responds to the large global prevalence of aquatic products and the rising demand in the aquatic industry in Mainland China and Hong Kong.... [-]

Overview

Food from aquatic systems is essential for much of the world’s population. However, with wild catches of seafood declining in many places, aquaculture is playing an increasing role as an alternative source of high-quality, nutritious food - and as an employer. Controlling disease is important to the ongoing success of this industry.

This Masters in Aquatic Veterinary Studies provides you with training in the wide range of disciplines and skills you need for the investigation, prevention and control of aquatic animal diseases. You’ll develop an understanding of the biology, husbandry and environment of farmed aquatic species, as well as specialist expertise in aquatic animal diseases.... [-]

Programme description

Veterinary epidemiology is a key component in a number of global grand challenges relating to disease control, food security and climate change. Consequently, there is a need to improve our ability to understand, predict and respond to patterns and dynamics of disease and to control outbreaks.

The R(D)SVS and SRUC partnership create the greatest concentration of research power in veterinary and agricultural sciences in the UK. The MSc draws on this wealth of experience and research activity to provide scientific knowledge of the fundamental biological processes (e.g. behaviour, physiology, immunology, ecology) and environmental and farming management practices (e.g. husbandry, nutrition, livestock trade) driving disease transmission, persistence, prevalence and spread in livestock production systems. This enables an in-depth understanding of complex environmental patterns of disease, which facilitates the prediction of disease risk and control. This multidisciplinary systems approach will provide you with the skills to make significant contributions to tackling food security, climate change and disease control in your role as an animal health professional....

Programme description

In the veterinary management of animals, anaesthesia (rendering animals unconscious to permit procedures) and analgesia (reducing the pain an animal is suffering) have vital importance in improving animal welfare, as well as permitting the ongoing developments in medical and surgical advances.

Knowledge and advances in anaesthesia over the last 20 years have been considerable. We can use techniques to block sensation locally or over a region of the body, not just total unconsciousness. We have an array of drugs and methods of drug administration available to us in our fight against pain. Anaesthesia has always carried risks, and we have an increasing availability of monitoring equipment to help us monitor the physiological function of the body during anaesthesia with the aim of reducing morbidity and mortality in our animals....
