Session 1

What’s All The Fuss About?

TRaw feeding for pets is a Marmite subject. Those vets and nurses who love it talk about it incessantly. Those who dislike it are at a loss to know why their colleagues advocate ‘risky unbalanced food’.
But both agree it’s on the rise. Some estimates suggest 10-20% of all your clients feed some or all raw meat-based diets to their pets. Therefore we are obliged to at least have a working knowledge of arguments for and against the practice.
We will unpack both sides of the arguments today to allow you to make up your mind.

What you’ll learn:

  • Setting the Scene: Passions are High
  • Arguments Against Raw and Their Validity
  • Arguments For Raw and Their Validity
  • Arguments For Kibble and Tins
  • Arguments Against Kibble and Tins
  • Raw vs Fresh Lightly Cooked Home-Prepared
Session 2

Starting with safe and practical advice for clients dead-set on going down the raw route. We discuss ingredients, including feeding bones safely. Ensuring a diet is balanced and complete is covered in the lessons. We’ll offer tips on when to feed and how to transition to raw with minimum fuss.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to Start
  • The Ingredients
  • Proportions and Quantities
  • Omega-3 Oils
  • How and When to Feed and Transitions
Session 3

Raw Food Therapeutics

Nutrition is essential in health. It is even more so in disease. If it is possible to support and manage common pathologies with diet from a tin or a bag, isn’t it possible with raw food? It is, of course.
We have left ‘nutrition’ to the corporations for so long we’ve forgotten how to feed sick animals. Raw food offers a significant intervention opportunity for vet practices in gut, skin, renal and hepatic disease.

What you’ll learn:

  • Why use Raw When We Have Prescription Diets?
  • The Thompson Stool Score system
  • Raw Food and Dietary Sensitivities/Intolerances
  • Raw Food and Diet-Related Dermatoses
  • Raw Food and Atopy?
  • Raw Food and Kidney Disease
  • Raw Food and Liver Disease


The price includes all 3 sessions, notes and quiz – 8 hours of CPD

*No traffic jams, accommodation hassles, pet or childcare, rota clashes, locum fees ……….. just great CPD and a valuable ongoing resource.

Overseas customers will be charged VAT. However we will refund the VAT to you within 3 working days.
