An Approach To The Sick Rabbit - for vets 8 years qualified & over
Date: 5th June 2019
Talk by Ian Sayers BVSc CertZooMed MRCVS. RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Zoological Medicine. Ian graduated from Liverpool University in 1992 and has had an exciting and varied career since. Ian taught at the University of Bristol Veterinary School for nine years, and was an integral part of the Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund Rabbit Referral Clinic, the UK’s first Rabbit Only Referral Service. He has lectured nationally and internationally, on both exotic and small animal topics and has contributed to various publications, on all aspects of ‘exotic’ medicine and surgery.
Rabbits are an increasingly popular pet with more owners expecting a similar standard of service and care for their rabbits, as for their cats and dogs. However, it’s not always straightforward.
As a prey species, rabbits hide sign of disease until they are so ill they can’t hide things anymore - at which point they may appear to be “suddenly” ill.
The evening will cover some of the more common problems/presentations that can be a challenge during a busy surgery, particularly when multiple disease aetiologies can present with similar clinical signs.
The presentation will be a blend of case based scenarios and associated background information. The aim is to enthuse your approach when dealing with rabbits, via an interactive evening’s CPD (without being too taxing after a day at work)
Held at Cullompton RFC.
