Vets urged to support Rabbit Awareness Week

Veterinary practices are being called upon to sign up for Burgess Pet Care RAW campaign when it attends the British Small Animal Veterinary Associations (BSAVA) congress in Birmingham on April 7-10.

“Up to 57 percent of rabbits live alone and we believe this number is still too high and are urging vets to support us in getting owners to pair up their bunnies with re-homed buddies from rescue centres.

“Last year we saw more than 3,000 vets pledge support for RAW but we’d like to top this, this year!” says Burgess Pet Care’s small animal brand manager Rehana Kausar.

“Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, the RAW campaign has not only put rabbit welfare high on the agenda but has helped hundreds of practices improve their services to rabbit owners and in turn increase footfall and turnover. Some practices have seen as much as a 60 percent increase in rabbit owning clients.”
