Zoology Online Course Outline

Module1: What is Zoology?

Part 1: A Definition of Zoology

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what we mean by Zoology
  • Be familiar with the five branches of Zoology
  • Understand what is meant by an ‘animal’.

A Definition of Zoology

The term zoology derives from the Greek words zion, which means "animal," and logos, which means "study of." It includes all areas of animal science, such as embryonic development, evolution, behavior, ecological distribution, and classification. There are many different approaches to research animals, because there are many different divisions of zoology. It is also graded according to which species are being studied. It encompasses topics ranging from organism composition to the subcellular unit of life.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The Five Branches of Zoology
  • Zoography
  • Comparative Anatomy
  • Animal Physiology
  • Ethology
  • Behavioral Ecology

Part 2: Introduction to Animals

Scientists have estimated that the Earth has nearly 8.7 million animal species that have evolved over 550 million years. This figure only includes organisms that have been found; many scientists claim that there are millions of species that are yet to be discovered. The world's oceans are also some of the most unexplored areas on the planet, despite significant efforts to discover them.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Invertebrates
  • Vertebrates
  • Reptiles and Birds
  • Mammals

Part 3: Interesting Facts about Animals

There are several animals in the animal world, some of which have yet to be found. They are made up of some of the tiniest species with the most distinct characteristics. Any of these species will be highlighted in this section of the module.

Module 2: History of Zoology

Part 1: The History of Zoology

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the history of zoology
  • Be familiar with some of the famous practitioners throughout history
  • Understand the history of the animal kingdom and how evolution and adaptation work.

The History of Zoology

Zoology was developed in the 17th century and advanced further in the 18th and 19th centuries. The European Renaissance was a watershed moment in the evolution of zoology, ushering in a more executive approach. As a result, research into various animals, their life, and their effects on the atmosphere was promoted. Physiologist William Harvey, anatomist Vesalius, and Carl Linnaeus were all instrumental in the advancement of various facets of zoology that aided in the experimentation and exploration of this area.

Part 2: Famous Practitioners

Many individuals have had an effect on the validation and advancement of zoology across history. All of those people were trailblazers for a better respect and understanding of various animals and plants, thus bringing our attention to their plight.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Charles Chilton
  • Dian Fossey
  • Jane Goodall
  • Jack Hanna
  • Rachel Carson
  • Gregor Mendel
  • Steve Irwin

Part 3: The History of the Animal Kingdom

The animal kingdom is described by the dictionary as a primitive group of mammals, both living and extinct, ranging from the tiniest organisms to the largest animals on the planet; from the fossils of the oldest dinosaurs to the minutest microbes. Since humans first learned to differentiate between animals and species, millions of new species have been discovered and classified based on environment, behavior, and structure.

Part 4: Evolution and Adaptation

What is the concept of evolution? The question could easily be resolved by stating that evolution is the mechanism by which animal and plant species have metamorphosed from single cellular organisms to more complex organisms. The idea that we began as microscopic creatures creeping out of primordial waters is a fascinating one.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Adaptation

Module 3: Classification of Animals

Part 1: The Characteristics of Animals

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the characteristics of animals
  • Be aware of how animals are classified
  • Understand the taxonomic classification.

This module will examine the fundamental characteristics that define an animal as "an animal."

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Multicellularity
  • Eukaryotic Cell Structure
  • Specialized Tissues
  • Sexual Reproduction
  • A Blastula Stage of Development
  • Motility
  • Heterotrophy
  • Advanced Nervous Systems

Part 2: The Classification of Animals

The biodiversity of the Earth is enormous, with over 40 million species of organisms thought to exist. However, only about 1.7 million have been classified. Many of these species have differences as well as similarities, but they must be classified into classes in order to allow for a deeper interpretation and systematic analysis.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The Need for Classification
  • Outline of Animal Classification

Part 3: Taxonomic Classification

Biologists normally categorize species. These classifications are typically based on evolutionary relationships and common characteristics between species. Species are the most fundamental unit of creation. Under natural conditions, members of a species group can openly interbreed and do not mate with other species.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Kingdom
  • Phylum
  • Class
  • Order
  • Family
  • Genus
  • Species

Module 4: Animal Behaviors

Part 1: Animal Characteristics and Behavior

Learning Objectives:

  • Be aware of various types of animal behavior
  • Be familiar with animal behavioral characteristics
  • Understand animal instinct and social behavior.

Animal Characteristics and Behavior

The dictionary describes animal behavior as "the systematic study of animal behavior."

That is fairly simple and self-explanatory. However, we will go into more detail and investigate the animal's traits and how they influence the animal's behavior.

Ethology is the science of animal behavior. Konrad Lorenz and Nikolaas Tinbergen invented the word ethology.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Learned Behaviors
  • Instinctive Behaviors
  • Abnormal Behaviors

Part 2: Understanding and Recognizing Behavior Characteristics

For years, scientists have researched animals: what they do, how they respond, how they live, and what they do to survive. Understanding and recognizing their characteristics or attributes in these circumstances would allow one to assist them in surviving. Some traits are easy to identify since they are seen in the majority, if not all, species. 

Part 3: Instinctual Attributes

Instinct is a constant and important trait of an animal – a pattern that is set in its DNA and cannot be studied. Well, when they are born, animals are pre-programmed with these characteristics. These characteristics can be seen in all animals or breeds. When animals are born, they are born knowing how to do those things.

Module 5: Genetics and Breeding

Part 1: Genetics

Learning Objectives:

  • Know more about the study of genes
  • Understand the difference between crossbreeding and pure breeding
  • Be familiar with the advantages of cross and pure breeding.

Genetics

To put it simply, biology is the science of chromosomes. Gregor Mendel, a 19th-century physicist, was the first to research genetics and all of its variants. Some people describe genetics as the study of heredity, or the genes passed on by ancestors. It has been known that an infant inherits genes from both parents, 23 chromosomes from each, and therefore traits are inherited from both parents.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Advantages
  • Disadvantages

Part 2: Cross Breeding

Crossbreeding is often known as the method of mating two separate breeds of animal to produce a new breed. The offspring will inherit both parents' genes and therefore characteristics, acquiring all desirable traits as well as those that made them vulnerable. This is also known as designer crossbreeding and by combining particular breeds, you are creating a specimen with the desired characteristics. Dogs are typically the most often crossbred species. Breeders do this to provide fitter, healthier dogs with more vitality and adaptability. This is an excellent way to increase the animal's gene pool.

Part 3: Pure Breeding

Pure breeding is a form of breeding in which parents with similar characteristics and traits produce offspring with similar characteristics and traits. Both children would be homozygous, meaning they would be the same color, build, and physical characteristics. They are also known as true-breeds at times.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Benefits of Pure and Cross Breeding
  • Benefits of Pure Breeding
  • Benefits of Cross Breeding

Module 6: Diversity of Life

Part 1: Organisms

Learning Objectives:

  • Organisms
  • Ecosystems
  • Food Chains
  • Cycles
  • Biodiversity

Organisms

An organism is simply any living being or mode of life. Animals, insects, and fungi are examples of species. Cells are found in organisms. They can adapt to stimuli, reproduce, grow and evolve, and maintain homeostasis. There are ten million species on Earth, though only a few have been recorded. About five billion animals are thought to be extinct today.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Scavengers
  • Parasites
  • Predators
  • Omnivores
  • Carnivores
  • Herbivores
  • Types of Organisms

Part 2: Ecosystems

An ecosystem is formed as all of the species communicate with one another and with the non-living world. Ecosystems are the foundation of the biosphere and, in many ways, determine the survival of the planet. Each part of the ecosystem serves a specific purpose. The association of animals with their surroundings is what drives the transfer of energy and the regeneration of carbon and nitrogen.

Part 3: Food Chains

To rise, travel, and replicate, all living beings need food. This is where the food chain enters the picture. Tiny insects would live on trees, while bigger species would get their calories from bigger ones.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Trophic Levels
  • Producers
  • Consumers
  • Decomposers
  • Food Web

Part 4: Cycles

Living organisms depend on their surroundings to meet their needs. Think of the following. To survive, an animal needs food and water. Food and water are gradually restored to the world after they have been eaten. This flow of matter through an ecosystem's living and non-living components occurs on a continuous basis. This is referred to as a loop because it occurs repeatedly.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Water Cycles
  • Carbon Cycles
  • Nitrogen Cycles

Part 5: Biodiversity

The term "biodiversity" refers to the abundance of organisms that can be found on Earth. Ecosystems, as well as the genetic, ecological, and cultural mechanisms that support life, are all included. Biodiversity is respected in all facets of life, not just for what it can bring to humans. Humans depend on biodiversity for food, fuel, shelter, and medicine.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Types of Biodiversity
  • Genetic Diversity
  • Species Diversity
  • Ecological Diversity

Module 7: Animal Diseases

Part 1: Overview

Learning Objectives:

  • Be familiar with different types of animal diseases
  • Understand how animal diseases are diagnosed
  • Know how animal diseases are treated.

Animal diseases, also known as zoonoses, are illnesses that humans may contract from animals. A wide range of human disorders are related to animals or their byproducts. One may be contracted directly from the animal or indirectly from the environment. Farm animals are typical carriers of these diseases, which is why most farmers thoroughly wash their hands after work.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Most Common Carriers
  • Other Forms

Part 2: Different Types of Diseases

The majority of animal diseases are caused by infectious, microbial, fungal, or parasitic organisms. People must have known of all of these illnesses, even though you were unaware that they were zoonotic! The majority of bacterial infections are foodborne.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Infections
  • Common Types of Zoonotic Diseases

Part 3: Diagnosing Diseases

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Find the Exact Symptoms

Part 4: Curing Diseases

Animal and non-animal illnesses have identical natural cures. However, cures that delay the extinction of zoonotic agents can only be used as a last resort. Antibiotics, for example, are commonly contraindicated in basic salmonella-related diarrhea because these chemicals will prolong salmonella bacterial shedding.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Treatment
  • Medications

Part 5: Animal Diseases Unrelated to Humans

Animal illnesses have an effect on more than just humans. Animals, like humans, get ill. As a result, they are entitled to the same healthcare and medication as anyone else in order to remain safe and disease-free. Many pet owners, fishermen, and veterinarians feel responsible for the safety and welfare of their cats, cattle, and patients.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Research
  • Medications

Module 8: Practicing Animal Care

Part 1: Overview

Learning Objectives:

  • Know more about handling animals
  • Be familiar with methods of training animals
  • Understand about rearing animals for food.

When scientists confirmed that animals had sentience, which means they have desires, feelings, and memories, animal care became profoundly important. This further demonstrates that animals can feel discomfort, struggle, and progress through various periods of well-being.

Part 3: Training

Good and/or negative feedback is used in training techniques. Positive reinforcement therapy is recommended by the majority of animal care professionals. Using such techniques means rewarding positive behavior and has been an effective technique for the humane care and use of laboratory animals.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Types of Learning

Part 4: Husbandry

Animal husbandry is a branch of agriculture concerned with the treatment of animals raised for beef, milk, eggs, or other animal products. It entails regular maintenance, supervised breeding, and livestock raising. Many technological advances and tools have made animal husbandry simpler, faster, and more convenient than in the past.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Types of Animal Husbandry

Part 5: Holding Facilities

Module 9: Animal Healthcare

People come across animal shelters all over the world. In the field of animal welfare, these are referred to as animal holding facilities. These facilities are the backbones of animal care, working to maintain and monitor free-roaming and abandoned animals such as strays, wild cats, and missing dogs. Cats and dogs make up the majority of the animals housed in these centers.

Part 1: Health Care Facilities

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how animal health care facilities function
  • Be familiar with common health issues in animals
  • Be aware of how to detect health issues in animals
  • Be familiar with the concept of animal rehabilitation.

Health Care Facilities

Health care facilities provide the services needed to promote animal health care. The type of medication animals undergo is determined by their species' behaviors and genetics, as well as their health levels. The facilities offer preventive health services for animals, as well as disease detection and veterinary and surgical care.

Part 2: Common Health Issues

Animals, including humans, are prone to a variety of health problems. It is critical to address these problems and have prompt care.

Part 3: Detecting Health Issues

Routine wellness tests are performed on animals to diagnose health conditions. Wellness exams in dogs, zoo animals, and farm animals can help eliminate certain diseases and avoid the spread of infection. A health problem in an animal can be avoided from escalating if the correct diagnosis is obtained as quickly as possible.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Detection of Health Issues in Zoos

Part 4: Animal Rehabilitation

The method of evaluating and treating animals with different health problems is known as animal recovery. The aim of rehabilitation is to increase the quality of life for animals and assist them in recovering from surgery, medical problems, and injuries. It may aid in the recovery of an animal's strength, endurance, and function.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Wildlife Rehabilitation

Module 10: Case Studies

Part 1: Case Study 1

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how the relationship between the Maasai tribe and lions has changed over the years
  • Be aware of how and why female bonobos form coalitions
  • Be familiar with the concept of zoochosis and the famous polar bear Gus.

Case Study 1

The Lions and the Maasai

The Maasai are an ancient ethnic group of semi-nomadic people who are considered one of Africa's most prominent tribes. The Maasai are a people who live between southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. They are well-known for their distinct culture, traditions, way of life, and customs.

Part 2: Case Study 2

Patterns of Female Coalition Formation in Wild Bonobos

Bonobos, also known as pygmy chimps, are members of the great ape family. Bonobos can be found in the Democratic Republic of the Congo's lowland rainforests to the south of the Congo River. Bonobos, along with chimps, are the nearest living relatives to humans, sharing more than 98 percent of their DNA. Bonobos are classified as an endangered species.

Part 3: Case Study 3

Gus, the Polar Bear of Central Park

Stereotypic behavior is a form of pathological behavior that is widely seen in captivity animals. It is characterized as a repeated, invariant behavior pattern with no discernible goal or function. The term zoochosis is often used to characterize personality issues and stereotypical behavior in captive animals.

Zoology Online Course Outline

Module1: What is Zoology?

Part 1: A Definition of Zoology

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what we mean by Zoology
  • Be familiar with the five branches of Zoology
  • Understand what is meant by an ‘animal’.

A Definition of Zoology

The term zoology derives from the Greek words zion, which means "animal," and logos, which means "study of." It includes all areas of animal science, such as embryonic development, evolution, behavior, ecological distribution, and classification. There are many different approaches to research animals, because there are many different divisions of zoology. It is also graded according to which species are being studied. It encompasses topics ranging from organism composition to the subcellular unit of life.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The Five Branches of Zoology
  • Zoography
  • Comparative Anatomy
  • Animal Physiology
  • Ethology
  • Behavioral Ecology

Part 2: Introduction to Animals

Scientists have estimated that the Earth has nearly 8.7 million animal species that have evolved over 550 million years. This figure only includes organisms that have been found; many scientists claim that there are millions of species that are yet to be discovered. The world's oceans are also some of the most unexplored areas on the planet, despite significant efforts to discover them.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Invertebrates
  • Vertebrates
  • Reptiles and Birds
  • Mammals

Part 3: Interesting Facts about Animals

There are several animals in the animal world, some of which have yet to be found. They are made up of some of the tiniest species with the most distinct characteristics. Any of these species will be highlighted in this section of the module.

Module 2: History of Zoology

Part 1: The History of Zoology

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the history of zoology
  • Be familiar with some of the famous practitioners throughout history
  • Understand the history of the animal kingdom and how evolution and adaptation work.

The History of Zoology

Zoology was developed in the 17th century and advanced further in the 18th and 19th centuries. The European Renaissance was a watershed moment in the evolution of zoology, ushering in a more executive approach. As a result, research into various animals, their life, and their effects on the atmosphere was promoted. Physiologist William Harvey, anatomist Vesalius, and Carl Linnaeus were all instrumental in the advancement of various facets of zoology that aided in the experimentation and exploration of this area.

Part 2: Famous Practitioners

Many individuals have had an effect on the validation and advancement of zoology across history. All of those people were trailblazers for a better respect and understanding of various animals and plants, thus bringing our attention to their plight.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Charles Chilton
  • Dian Fossey
  • Jane Goodall
  • Jack Hanna
  • Rachel Carson
  • Gregor Mendel
  • Steve Irwin

Part 3: The History of the Animal Kingdom

The animal kingdom is described by the dictionary as a primitive group of mammals, both living and extinct, ranging from the tiniest organisms to the largest animals on the planet; from the fossils of the oldest dinosaurs to the minutest microbes. Since humans first learned to differentiate between animals and species, millions of new species have been discovered and classified based on environment, behavior, and structure.

Part 4: Evolution and Adaptation

What is the concept of evolution? The question could easily be resolved by stating that evolution is the mechanism by which animal and plant species have metamorphosed from single cellular organisms to more complex organisms. The idea that we began as microscopic creatures creeping out of primordial waters is a fascinating one.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Adaptation

Module 3: Classification of Animals

Part 1: The Characteristics of Animals

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the characteristics of animals
  • Be aware of how animals are classified
  • Understand the taxonomic classification.

This module will examine the fundamental characteristics that define an animal as "an animal."

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Multicellularity
  • Eukaryotic Cell Structure
  • Specialized Tissues
  • Sexual Reproduction
  • A Blastula Stage of Development
  • Motility
  • Heterotrophy
  • Advanced Nervous Systems

Part 2: The Classification of Animals

The biodiversity of the Earth is enormous, with over 40 million species of organisms thought to exist. However, only about 1.7 million have been classified. Many of these species have differences as well as similarities, but they must be classified into classes in order to allow for a deeper interpretation and systematic analysis.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The Need for Classification
  • Outline of Animal Classification

Part 3: Taxonomic Classification

Biologists normally categorize species. These classifications are typically based on evolutionary relationships and common characteristics between species. Species are the most fundamental unit of creation. Under natural conditions, members of a species group can openly interbreed and do not mate with other species.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Kingdom
  • Phylum
  • Class
  • Order
  • Family
  • Genus
  • Species

Module 4: Animal Behaviors

Part 1: Animal Characteristics and Behavior

Learning Objectives:

  • Be aware of various types of animal behavior
  • Be familiar with animal behavioral characteristics
  • Understand animal instinct and social behavior.

Animal Characteristics and Behavior

The dictionary describes animal behavior as "the systematic study of animal behavior."

That is fairly simple and self-explanatory. However, we will go into more detail and investigate the animal's traits and how they influence the animal's behavior.

Ethology is the science of animal behavior. Konrad Lorenz and Nikolaas Tinbergen invented the word ethology.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Learned Behaviors
  • Instinctive Behaviors
  • Abnormal Behaviors

Part 2: Understanding and Recognizing Behavior Characteristics

For years, scientists have researched animals: what they do, how they respond, how they live, and what they do to survive. Understanding and recognizing their characteristics or attributes in these circumstances would allow one to assist them in surviving. Some traits are easy to identify since they are seen in the majority, if not all, species. 

Part 3: Instinctual Attributes

Instinct is a constant and important trait of an animal – a pattern that is set in its DNA and cannot be studied. Well, when they are born, animals are pre-programmed with these characteristics. These characteristics can be seen in all animals or breeds. When animals are born, they are born knowing how to do those things.

Module 5: Genetics and Breeding

Part 1: Genetics

Learning Objectives:

  • Know more about the study of genes
  • Understand the difference between crossbreeding and pure breeding
  • Be familiar with the advantages of cross and pure breeding.

Genetics

To put it simply, biology is the science of chromosomes. Gregor Mendel, a 19th-century physicist, was the first to research genetics and all of its variants. Some people describe genetics as the study of heredity, or the genes passed on by ancestors. It has been known that an infant inherits genes from both parents, 23 chromosomes from each, and therefore traits are inherited from both parents.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Advantages
  • Disadvantages

Part 2: Cross Breeding

Crossbreeding is often known as the method of mating two separate breeds of animal to produce a new breed. The offspring will inherit both parents' genes and therefore characteristics, acquiring all desirable traits as well as those that made them vulnerable. This is also known as designer crossbreeding and by combining particular breeds, you are creating a specimen with the desired characteristics. Dogs are typically the most often crossbred species. Breeders do this to provide fitter, healthier dogs with more vitality and adaptability. This is an excellent way to increase the animal's gene pool.

Part 3: Pure Breeding

Pure breeding is a form of breeding in which parents with similar characteristics and traits produce offspring with similar characteristics and traits. Both children would be homozygous, meaning they would be the same color, build, and physical characteristics. They are also known as true-breeds at times.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Benefits of Pure and Cross Breeding
  • Benefits of Pure Breeding
  • Benefits of Cross Breeding

Module 6: Diversity of Life

Part 1: Organisms

Learning Objectives:

  • Organisms
  • Ecosystems
  • Food Chains
  • Cycles
  • Biodiversity

Organisms

An organism is simply any living being or mode of life. Animals, insects, and fungi are examples of species. Cells are found in organisms. They can adapt to stimuli, reproduce, grow and evolve, and maintain homeostasis. There are ten million species on Earth, though only a few have been recorded. About five billion animals are thought to be extinct today.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Scavengers
  • Parasites
  • Predators
  • Omnivores
  • Carnivores
  • Herbivores
  • Types of Organisms

Part 2: Ecosystems

An ecosystem is formed as all of the species communicate with one another and with the non-living world. Ecosystems are the foundation of the biosphere and, in many ways, determine the survival of the planet. Each part of the ecosystem serves a specific purpose. The association of animals with their surroundings is what drives the transfer of energy and the regeneration of carbon and nitrogen.

Part 3: Food Chains

To rise, travel, and replicate, all living beings need food. This is where the food chain enters the picture. Tiny insects would live on trees, while bigger species would get their calories from bigger ones.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Trophic Levels
  • Producers
  • Consumers
  • Decomposers
  • Food Web

Part 4: Cycles

Living organisms depend on their surroundings to meet their needs. Think of the following. To survive, an animal needs food and water. Food and water are gradually restored to the world after they have been eaten. This flow of matter through an ecosystem's living and non-living components occurs on a continuous basis. This is referred to as a loop because it occurs repeatedly.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Water Cycles
  • Carbon Cycles
  • Nitrogen Cycles

Part 5: Biodiversity

The term "biodiversity" refers to the abundance of organisms that can be found on Earth. Ecosystems, as well as the genetic, ecological, and cultural mechanisms that support life, are all included. Biodiversity is respected in all facets of life, not just for what it can bring to humans. Humans depend on biodiversity for food, fuel, shelter, and medicine.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Types of Biodiversity
  • Genetic Diversity
  • Species Diversity
  • Ecological Diversity

Module 7: Animal Diseases

Part 1: Overview

Learning Objectives:

  • Be familiar with different types of animal diseases
  • Understand how animal diseases are diagnosed
  • Know how animal diseases are treated.

Animal diseases, also known as zoonoses, are illnesses that humans may contract from animals. A wide range of human disorders are related to animals or their byproducts. One may be contracted directly from the animal or indirectly from the environment. Farm animals are typical carriers of these diseases, which is why most farmers thoroughly wash their hands after work.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Most Common Carriers
  • Other Forms

Part 2: Different Types of Diseases

The majority of animal diseases are caused by infectious, microbial, fungal, or parasitic organisms. People must have known of all of these illnesses, even though you were unaware that they were zoonotic! The majority of bacterial infections are foodborne.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Infections
  • Common Types of Zoonotic Diseases

Part 3: Diagnosing Diseases

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Find the Exact Symptoms

Part 4: Curing Diseases

Animal and non-animal illnesses have identical natural cures. However, cures that delay the extinction of zoonotic agents can only be used as a last resort. Antibiotics, for example, are commonly contraindicated in basic salmonella-related diarrhea because these chemicals will prolong salmonella bacterial shedding.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Treatment
  • Medications

Part 5: Animal Diseases Unrelated to Humans

Animal illnesses have an effect on more than just humans. Animals, like humans, get ill. As a result, they are entitled to the same healthcare and medication as anyone else in order to remain safe and disease-free. Many pet owners, fishermen, and veterinarians feel responsible for the safety and welfare of their cats, cattle, and patients.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Research
  • Medications

Module 8: Practicing Animal Care

Part 1: Overview

Learning Objectives:

  • Know more about handling animals
  • Be familiar with methods of training animals
  • Understand about rearing animals for food.

When scientists confirmed that animals had sentience, which means they have desires, feelings, and memories, animal care became profoundly important. This further demonstrates that animals can feel discomfort, struggle, and progress through various periods of well-being.

Part 3: Training

Good and/or negative feedback is used in training techniques. Positive reinforcement therapy is recommended by the majority of animal care professionals. Using such techniques means rewarding positive behavior and has been an effective technique for the humane care and use of laboratory animals.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Types of Learning

Part 4: Husbandry

Animal husbandry is a branch of agriculture concerned with the treatment of animals raised for beef, milk, eggs, or other animal products. It entails regular maintenance, supervised breeding, and livestock raising. Many technological advances and tools have made animal husbandry simpler, faster, and more convenient than in the past.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Types of Animal Husbandry

Part 5: Holding Facilities

Module 9: Animal Healthcare

People come across animal shelters all over the world. In the field of animal welfare, these are referred to as animal holding facilities. These facilities are the backbones of animal care, working to maintain and monitor free-roaming and abandoned animals such as strays, wild cats, and missing dogs. Cats and dogs make up the majority of the animals housed in these centers.

Part 1: Health Care Facilities

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how animal health care facilities function
  • Be familiar with common health issues in animals
  • Be aware of how to detect health issues in animals
  • Be familiar with the concept of animal rehabilitation.

Health Care Facilities

Health care facilities provide the services needed to promote animal health care. The type of medication animals undergo is determined by their species' behaviors and genetics, as well as their health levels. The facilities offer preventive health services for animals, as well as disease detection and veterinary and surgical care.

Part 2: Common Health Issues

Animals, including humans, are prone to a variety of health problems. It is critical to address these problems and have prompt care.

Part 3: Detecting Health Issues

Routine wellness tests are performed on animals to diagnose health conditions. Wellness exams in dogs, zoo animals, and farm animals can help eliminate certain diseases and avoid the spread of infection. A health problem in an animal can be avoided from escalating if the correct diagnosis is obtained as quickly as possible.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Detection of Health Issues in Zoos

Part 4: Animal Rehabilitation

The method of evaluating and treating animals with different health problems is known as animal recovery. The aim of rehabilitation is to increase the quality of life for animals and assist them in recovering from surgery, medical problems, and injuries. It may aid in the recovery of an animal's strength, endurance, and function.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Wildlife Rehabilitation

Module 10: Case Studies

Part 1: Case Study 1

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how the relationship between the Maasai tribe and lions has changed over the years
  • Be aware of how and why female bonobos form coalitions
  • Be familiar with the concept of zoochosis and the famous polar bear Gus.

Case Study 1

The Lions and the Maasai

The Maasai are an ancient ethnic group of semi-nomadic people who are considered one of Africa's most prominent tribes. The Maasai are a people who live between southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. They are well-known for their distinct culture, traditions, way of life, and customs.

Part 2: Case Study 2

Patterns of Female Coalition Formation in Wild Bonobos

Bonobos, also known as pygmy chimps, are members of the great ape family. Bonobos can be found in the Democratic Republic of the Congo's lowland rainforests to the south of the Congo River. Bonobos, along with chimps, are the nearest living relatives to humans, sharing more than 98 percent of their DNA. Bonobos are classified as an endangered species.

Part 3: Case Study 3

Gus, the Polar Bear of Central Park

Stereotypic behavior is a form of pathological behavior that is widely seen in captivity animals. It is characterized as a repeated, invariant behavior pattern with no discernible goal or function. The term zoochosis is often used to characterize personality issues and stereotypical behavior in captive animals.
