Complexities and Controversies. . . The Importance of Evidence - Raw Feeding Veterinary Society 2019 International Conference
Nov 9, 2019 at 09:00 — Nov 10, 2019 at 15:30 (GMT)
This year's conference is yet another milestone for the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society as we move to a two day event. We simply couldn't fit enough into one day with all the exciting developments in the world of raw feeding ! The programme is at the end of this information.
Our speakers again come from all over the world, covering a wide range of topics of interest to vets and nurses wanting to know more about raw feeding to be able to support their clients' choice for their pet (and ensure their clients aren't making mistakes) as well as seasoned raw feeding vets and nurses wanting to hear the latest research into raw feeding carried out at the University of Helsinki. For the first time this year, we will be featuring a clinical discussion on managing pancreatitis and looking at tackling common feline diseases using raw food. The conference gives 5 hours and 45 minutes CPD on Saturday and 5 hours on Sunday.
This year's event will be in the centre of Bristol (the city chosen by polling our members). The hotel has reserved a number of reduced price rooms for RFVS delegates.
