Supreme Petfoods has announced that the free virtual training it provides about care of small pets is now accredited by SQP regulator Vetpol.\u00a0\r\n\r\nThe content has been developed by Supreme with leading veterinary specialists and expert veterinary 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.\u00a0\r\n\r\nSome of Supreme\u2019s webinar 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 great advice to help them maintain the health of their pets.\u00a0\r\n\r\nSupreme Marketing Manager, Claire Hamblion says the accreditation reflects the quality of the materials available.\r\n\r\nShe said: \u201cIt\u2019s long been our focus to produce high quality CPD. The specialists delivering this training include Molly Varga, Jo Hinde, Charly Pignon, Jo Hedley, Anna Meredith and Livia Benato \u2013 all names that veterinary professionals will recognise for their passion for improving veterinary care for small pets. Now with Vetpol\u2019s accreditation, Companion Animal SQPs can also ensure that they benefit from CPD that\u2019s specific to small pets.\u201d\r\n\r\nSupreme joins an \u201cimpressive line up\u201d of companies that offer free CPD, accredited by Vetpol across a variety of species.\r\n\r\nVetpol Co-founder, Caroline Johnson, said:\u00a0 \u201cWe 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.\u201d\r\n\r\nSupreme Petfoods has specialised in the care and nutrition of small pets for 25 years. It was the first company to make species specific small animal diets that reflected their unique nutritional requirements.\u00a0\r\n\r\nAs well as offering the biggest range of species-specific foods, Supreme also manufactures all its herbivore diets in dedicated vegetarian facilities. Its recipes are all manufactured to a fixed formula to minimise the risk of gastric upset.
