Saturday, July 2, 2016

By providing accurate and appropriate advice under the direction of a veterinarian, veterinary nurses can assist clients to successfully manage pets with chronic illnesses in their homes. By extrapolating the Ability Model of Orpet and Jeffery 2007, advice can be provided to the client in the form of a Chronic Illness Management Plan which will inform the client on what to expect from the illness and how best to provide day to day care for their pet and ultimately improve the pet's quality of life.
