About the project

We want to raise the funds to send two registered veterinary nurses, two veterinary surgeons and eight student veterinary nurses from Edinburgh Napier University to Kerala Veterinary School in southern India to train local veterinary technicians in a two week workshop.  The project will be delivered in conjunction with the Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education, with the support of the College of Animal Welfare and the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies.  The aim is to train the technicians in basic clinical techniques and low tech interventions which will make a big difference to the quality of life of animals in their care. 

This knowledge can make a massive difference to the recovery of the animal and can empower the veterinary technician to make lasting improvements to the animals in her care without needing to ask for permission or spending any money.  It is this knowledge that our students who are trained to RCVS standards can impart to their professional peers in India.
