The interactive case discussion session will provide a rare opportunity for the audience to have their questions answered by rabbit experts and share the experiences of other professionals.

Speakers include Charly Pignon, DVM Head of the Exotics Medicine Service at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vétérinaire d’Alfort in France; Anna Meredith, MA VetMB CertLAS DZooMed MRCVS,; Molly Varga, BVetMed DZooMed MRCVS, RCVS Specialist in Zoo and Wildlife Medicine; Livia Benato MRCVS, Lecturer in Rabbit and Exotic animal Husbandry and Nutrition and Wendy Bament RVN BSc (Hons) MSc, Exotic Animal Veterinary Nurse.

Wendy Bament commented, “Not only am I really looking forward to being able to share my expertise with other rabbit enthusiasts, but the London Vet Show is also a great opportunity to meet members of the profession and learn of their experiences.”

London Vet Show is a highlight in the calendar for many veterinary professionals, renowned for its provision of top-class CPD and seminars, to which Supreme is pleased to be contributing with its lecture line-up. Not only are the specialists regarded as academic leaders of their profession, but they are also renowned successful speakers, making the seminar series an unmissable opportunity.

Claire Hamblion is Supreme Marketing Manager, “We spend a lot of time talking to veterinary experts around the world about the nutritional needs of small furries. It’s a real pleasure to bring some of them to London Vet Show to share their experience and knowledge.”

Vets that are aiming for clinical excellence when dealing with bunnies, should hop along to London this November.
