Complexities and Controversies: The Importance of Evidence Raw Feeding Veterinary Society 2019 International Conference
Nov 9, 2019 at 08:30 — 18:00 (GMT)
Speakers come from all over the world, and will be covering dynamic topics of interest on raw. Barbara Royal (starring vet from Petfooled Movie), Susan Thixton (nutrition warrior fighting the big pet food corporations daily on her blog The Truth About Pet Food), and Professor Anna Hielm-Bjorkman (chief researcher and head of the massive DogRisk raw food research group at Helsinki University) will be presenting new critical work.
We feature a clinical discussion on managing pancreatitis and tackling common feline diseases using raw food.
The conference gives 6.5 hours CPD (and lots of opportunities to catch up with colleagues and friends). Special lunch and refreshments all provided. There is accommodation on-site and lots of B&Bs nearby.
This day meeting is a MUST for vets, vet nurses and anyone with similar passion for canine and feline health through species appropriate nutrition.
