Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

The objective of this rotation is to prepare students for their future encounters with all types of donkeys in all types of settings and to provide a thorough understanding of appropriate welfare for these donkeys. This course will emphasize anatomical, physiological, behavioral and other differences between the donkey and the horse. It will also highlight the differences between the typical domestic donkey, the U.S. "wild burros," working donkeys abroad and those involved in production systems. The goal is to provide the tools necessary for practitioners in equine, mixed or other fields to have successful, productive encounters with donkeys whether those encounters occur in their veterinary lives or their personal travels. This course will utilize both internal and external experts in all things donkey-related. Emphasis will be placed on conveying practical knowledge utilizing lectures, labs and one-on-one interactions with guest speakers.
