Supreme Petfoods is sponsoring a new veterinary education company that will focus on rabbits only. LagoLearn will train vets, veterinary nurses and students on the specifics of rabbit medicine and surgery, provided through lectures and workshops. The aim is to raise the standards of rabbit care equivalent to those received by dogs and cats both in the UK and internationally.

Claire Hamblion, Supreme Marketing Manager says it’s important that standards and capabilities in rabbit care continue to improve, “Rabbits are the third most popular pet in the UK and they have many specific needs when it comes to veterinary care. We want to support all veterinary practices in developing their expertise in this area so that these much loved pets can benefit from the same advances in veterinary medicine that other species enjoy.”

LagoLearn founders, Mrs Jo Hinde RVN and Dr Ivan Crotaz BVetMed, both lecture internationally on the veterinary care of rabbits and are looking forward to working with the profession through this dedicated venture. Jo said, “It’s great to have the support of Supreme Petfoods from the very start. We know the company has a passion for improving the lives of rabbits and a long heritage of backing high quality continuing professional development (CPD). Together, we can make sure all practices are equipped to care for rabbits confidently and competently.”

LagoLearn’s first training day will be held on 13th October in Berkshire and will focus on anaesthesia, dentistry and nursing, with separate streams for vets and vet nurses. Find out more at www.lagolearn.com
