It is therefore ideal CPD for Veterinary Nurses who work with rabbit patients.

Great news for animal welfare as at last the Government are planning for mandatory CCTV for all slaughterhouses in England. Animal charities such as Animal Aid as well as the BVA and the VHPA have been campaigning for years for this and it is a huge step forward for animal welfare that it is now going forward. The shocking footage exposed by those such as Animal Aid of animal abuses in slaughterhouses has really shown the need for CCTV so that the animal welfare at time of slaughter can be more effectively monitored. To read more about it see the BVA page or here for further info.
