RWAF Vet Conferences and CPD Roadshows 2019

RWAF & Burgess Pet Care have been working together to deliver rabbit specific CPD for 15 years! We are immensely proud of this and we continue to lead the way in providing world class rabbit education. 2019 sees us shake things up. We are offering a variety of CPD which we hope will be of use to every vet and vet nurse in practice.

There will be a:

1) ‘Rabbit Essentials’ day for vets and vet nurses who would like to brush up, refresh or become more confident in dealing with rabbits day to day.

2) ‘Advanced Practice’ day for Vets who are already seeing a lot of rabbit patients and are confident in doing so, but want to improve their skills.

Because this is all sponsored by Burgess Pet Care we are able to offer this at rock bottom rates as we want as many vets and vet nurses to come along as possible!

We are also offering hands on workshops as roadshows, in two venues across the UK. These roadshows are small groups (max of 10) to allow delegates to ask questions and get help with what they need out of the day. Delegates are assessed and issued with a certificate of competence (hopefully!) after the session. Feedback for these sessions is always excellent and places are limited so please book your place asap!

Please book on line via our website: shop.rabbitwelfare.co.uk, or for more details e-mail us at vet@rabbitwelfare.co.uk
