Rabbit Dentistry: A Practical Workshop

Rabbit Dentistry: A Practical Workshop

Dental disease is common in pet rabbits; learn to confidently approach, diagnose and treat these cases. 

 

Rabbits have always been common pets, but there has been a shift in the way they are nurtured and valued by their owners. Once perhaps considered “replaceable”, these little companions are now loved family members – and the expectation is that most of their medical and surgical needs can be met in general practice.   

Dental disease is one of the most common conditions seen in rabbits. This workshop is intended to equip clinicians with the knowledge and skills to confidently approach, diagnose and treat these cases. Presentations will discuss important aspects of rabbit dentistry including anatomy, radiography, instrumentation, dealing with complications and post operative care.

The practical sessions will provide the opportunity to practice radiography and common dental procedures under the guidance of your two expert tutors, ABVP diplomates Dr David Vella and Dr Joanne Sheen. Don’t miss this opportunity to expand your expertise and improve your capacity to care for your rabbit patients.

What is a workshop?

Highly practical - develop the confidence to implement your new skills on your return to work

Practical workshops are an ideal way to build confidence and competence in your skills, as you put theory into practice.

Ideally balanced combination of theoretical and hands-on education, our workshops allow participants to obtain the most benefit possible through practical application of the skills being taught. Small group teaching with a high tutor to participant ratio will ensure that you benefit from individual attention from your highly regarded and experienced tutor/s. Nothing beats on-the-spot feedback as you learn a new procedure.
