About The Webinar

Gastrointestinal disease is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in pet rabbits. Disease due to infectious agents is more likely to be encountered in young rabbits at or around the time of weaning, whereas non-infectious causes are more commonly seen in adult rabbits. In particular, gastrointestinal stasis is a common condition, associated with multiple causes of a reduction or cessation of normal GI motility. Gastric dilation is frequently associated with intestinal obstruction. Rapid diagnosis, decision making and institution of supportive care is essential for the successful management of these cases.
Many common causes of rabbit GI disease can be prevented by the feeding of an appropriate high fibre diet, good hygiene and minimisation of stressors, and support of the rabbit GI tract should always play a critical role in rabbit veterinary care.

In this webinar, Anna provides expert advice to help improve your skills and confidence in the management of your rabbit patients.
