Rabbit Interactive 2018

The RWAF has been holding Vet CPD events for 16 years now, we now hold these under our ‘Rabbit Interactive ‘ brand. We are the only organisation to hold dedicated rabbit CPD by Specialists, and offer both lectures and practical master classes. Feedback from our conferences is always excellent.

Feedback from the Vetstream in 2016 showed:

  • 100% said they would attend again
  • 100% said it would make a difference to their day to day practice.

Rabbit Interactive is an established and recognised brand, and the only rabbit CPD to offer all of these benefits:

  • RWAF endorsed CPD and certificate.
  • Practical hands on small workshops.
  • ‘Pass’ for each masterclass and logo which can be used for marketing.
  • An Educator Team including recognised specialists.

All delegates will receive a CPD certificate and a pass (hopefully!) certificate for their chosen workshops.

We have been very fortunate to have had the support of Burgess Pet Care to make these events possible.

Once again we are offering world class rabbit specific CPD from a host of Specialist educators.
