Remarkable Rabbit Anaesthesia Roadshow hosted by Alfaxan® manufacturer
Rabbit ownership is increasing, an estimated 1.3 million pet rabbits live in the UK with 2% of UK households owning a rabbit1. This rise in the number of pet rabbits has led to an increased demand for rabbit healthcare and veterinary treatments.
With this in mind, Jurox (UK) Private Limited Company, manufacturer of Alfaxan, the popular anaesthetic for cats and dogs, is hosting a series of evening CPD meetings to promote best practice rabbit anaesthesia within the vet and nursing community.
Topics covered during the roadshows include the full anaesthetic procedure in pet rabbits from pre-med through to recovery. They will focus on factors that make pet rabbits different to cats and dogs and practical tips to help reduce the risk of complications in rabbits.
The Remarkable Rabbit Anaesthesia Roadshows will feature leading experts in rabbit anaesthesia such as Ian Self, European Specialist and Clinical Associate Professor in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia at Nottingham Vet School and Pride Veterinary Centre; Joanna Hedley, Lecturer in Exotic Species and Small Mammal Medicine and Surgery at the Royal Veterinary College in Camden; Jenna Richardson HFSA Veterinary Lecturer and Clinician, Rabbit, Exotic Animal and Wildlife Practice at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and Richard Saunders, RCVS Registered Specialist in Zoo and Wild Animal Medicine (Mammals) at Bristol Zoo.
The schedule of meetings include:
- Tuesday 7th November in Bristol – Richard Saunders
- Wednesday 8th November in Kent – Joanna Hedley
- Tuesday 21st November in Edinburgh – Jenna Richardson
- Wednesday 22nd November in Manchester – Joanna Hedley
- Tuesday 28th November in Birmingham – Richard Saunders
- Wednesday 29th November in Southampton – Joanna Hedley
