Lifetime Learning Programme (PLLP)
Project will involve you in identifying potential health hazards for your
selected animal and writing a brief report.
Your report will count as 10 Continuing
Education points towards your annual PLLP target of 90 points, and
Provet will send you an appraisal of your Entry. The best entries will be judged
and you may win an Award !
Every environment contains potential health hazards
for animals (eg extreme weather, heat, cold, water, gases, poisons, traffic,
glass, barbed wire, parasites, infectious diseases) For a selected animal (eg
cat,dog,rabbit,horse,cattle, sheep) examine the immediate and surrounding
environments carefully and try to identify all the potential health hazards. Write a
brief report to include the following :
completed send the report by email (in .doc format) to the Course Organiser:
- List all the potential health hazards that you
have identified, and rank them as High, Medium, Low or Insignificant risk
(insignificant risk might be the likelihood of a plane falling out of the
sky on to the animal).
- List what precautions have already been taken to
minimise exposure to health risks (eg the animal may be confined in a cage
or enclosure to prevent it escaping on to a road, or it may have been
vaccinated against disease)
- List any measures that you could/should take to
minimise exposure to existing health risks - you should be able to
identify at least 6 risks !
- List any health risk that your animal may
represent to it's environment and other animals/people in it.
- If you are not happy that you know what local
health hazards to look for - draw up a list of local professionals who you
can ask for advice
- Any other comments that you want to make
