Clinical CPD Programme for 2020 2021 (dates tbc)

2020 will see us back in Edinburgh, at the brilliant Royal Dick School of Vet Studies.
We are once again offering world class rabbit specific CPD from a host of Specialist Educators.
We have the ever popular workshops on Friday, please book soon if you don’t want to miss out as places are limited.
We have a mix of essential and advanced lectures on Saturday for the clinical stream. Sunday sees the return of our
popular Rabbit Behaviour Day, which is not to be missed and was a sell out last time.

Friday 19th June 2020

The afternoon is a wet lab, hands on practical workshop, using dental and intubation equipment. It will include a lecture element and delegates will be able to ask questions relevant to them, in this small group and informal session.

An afternoon with Kevin Eatwell
BVSc (hons) DZooMed (Reptilian) Dip ECZM (Herpetological and Small Mammals) MRCVS RCVS recognised specialist in Zoo and Wildlife Medicine ECZM Recognised Veterinary Specialist in Herpetological Medicine

Time Topic
1.00 – 3.00 Dentistry
