Hands-On Course: Handling and Dosing

On 22 May 2023, Göttingen Minipigs Academy conducts a Handling and Dosing course at our breeding and research site in Dalmose, Denmark.

On this course you get an introduction to the Göttingen Minipigs and you learn how to take care of, train and handle the animal in the best possible manner.

Moreover, you get to try different practical procedures like lifting and carrying the minipig, dosing the animal via various routes, and establish a vascular access. We also briefly touch upon anaesthesia and euthanasia.

Please note that seats are limited!
