Hampshire-based SQP animal medicine advisor is the first to pass AMTRA’s Avian Module
The first SQP animal medicine advisor has passed AMTRA’s Avian Module. Jacqui Lowth, who qualified as an SQP in 1998 and works for Hampshire-based saddlery Norris of Beaulieu, enrolled to add the new avian module to her qualification in March. She passed the exam in May.
The avian module, which covers husbandry, anatomy and disease recognition for most species of domestically kept birds, is aimed at existing SQPs as well as those new to supplying authorised medicines. It was developed partly in response to the rapid growth in the number of people keeping backyard poultry, and the subsequent demand for bird health information and medicines.
