Join us at Bayview Eden Hotel, Melbourne for a day of everything rabbit related. With three lecture streams plus a large designated trade and exhibition space, this promises to be a really exciting follow-up to Rabbit Expo 2017!


The trade fair will give delegates the opportunity to browse new products and ideas, chat to company representatives, and perhaps do a little Christmas shopping!. There will be some charities attending the trade fair as well, so make sure you visit their stalls and give them your support!


More and more people are discovering the joy of owning a rabbit. Many rabbits are now kept as house rabbits and owners enjoy a long and happy relationship with their bunnies. This course will give you a wealth of useful information, to help improve your confidence in diagnosing and treating a range of clinical conditions, and understand how they specifically affect older rabbits.


Veterinary stream outline:
