A company has begun offering CPD that focuses solely on rabbits.

Despite being the third most popular pet in the UK, rabbits are still often treated as exotic or unusual pets – something CPD provider LagoLearn hopes to address with its new courses.

Raising standards

The company was formed with the aim of helping veterinary professionals raise the standard of rabbit care in line with that of pet dogs and cats. It is the only company that supplies rabbit-specific CPD to vets, nurses and students without featuring any other species.

Sponsored by Supreme Petfoods, LagoLearn provides small group training days that cover a range of rabbit-related topics, from husbandry and diet to anaesthesia, dentistry and surgery.

These events comprise a range of lectures, small group teaching, case studies and practical/problem-solving workshops presented by experts in their field.

Rabbit round-up

LagoLearn’s next event is on 13 October at Easthampstead Park in Berkshire. This will be a Rabbit round-up day course that concentrates on rabbit care in general practice.

The day will provide six hours of certified CPD, starting off with an overview of rabbit veterinary care before covering anaesthesia, dentistry and nursing.

The day has vet and nursing streams (£210 and £105 plus VAT, respectively), with tickets available to book online.
