Being ‘cared for properly’ means cared for in the correct way for the type of animal. All animals need to have the same things in life: they need to breathe, move, eat, drink, be kept at the correct temperature for them, safe and clean, invertebrates included. As human beings we have a responsibility to all the beings on this planet and especially those in our personal care. So, looking after animals is a very responsible job and this course has an aim of giving you skills and biological knowledge to do this job successfully. This course is another step to being able to care for animals properly. This course is set at Level 1 and is designed to provide basic information about animal care including animal handling, cleaning, feeding and providing exercise for companion animals such as dogs, cats, rabbits and small animals.
