Free Training Event for Rabbit Owners & those Working With Them
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)

On Tuesday the GSPCA are holding a special training session to help rabbit owners and professionals that may work or care for bunnies due to the outbreak of RHVD2 recently. The event is open to everyone and free of charge although donations are very much appreciated. There is no need to book a space but if you could email your name and number and the names of anyone that might join you to stevejbyrne@gspca.org.gg we can prepare the training room at the GSPCA in advance or please call 01481 257261. The training takes place at 130pm on Tuesday 4th July at the GSPCA and is predicted to take approximately an hour and a half. A welcome will be given by GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne and then passed on to local vet Ben Howitt who works at Isabelle Vets and has been working closely with the GSPCA and caring for the sick and injured rabbits that have come into the GSPCA since he joined the Isabelle Vets team last year. Ben Howitt was brought up in Singapore for his entire schooling, before returning to the UK to read Veterinary Medicine at the University of Bristol. During his studies, Ben frequently saw practice at Isabelle Vets, and after graduating from Bristol last year, he joined their team as an associate veterinary surgeon. After completing his elective in Neurology as a student at Langford Veterinary Referrals, he has retained a keen interest in pursuing this area of medicine. Ben also has an enthusiasm for wildlife, having had placements at Durrell Wildlife Park as well as with bigger game species out in South Africa. As a result, he has been working closely with the GSPCA since joining their team. Ben will be talking for about 15 to 20 minutes about the disease and the care of rabbits and what precautions can be taken and will answer any questions those attending a may have. We will break for a short coffee break then at 2pm Rick Hayman Managing Director of Medichem Scientific Ltd will be doing a talk on Anigene and COSHH and will focus on cleaning out rabbits cages and other animals environments and enclosures. Rick was coming over to Guernsey to carry out this training for the GSPCA team and attend an animal charity meeting talking place next week and has kindly agreed to open the training to anyone interested to attend. Rick has over 25 years in the business of disinfectants for vets and animal charities and the GSPCA have been using Anigene for 6 years. Medimark Scientific and especially Rick have always been extremely kind to the GSPCA in donations, equipment, training and support and we retail Anigene at the GSPCA shop if anyone is in need of a disinfectant that can eradicate RHVD2 from an animal cage. Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager "With the worries of RHVD2 killing rabbits in Guernsey we thought we would provide a training session for anyone interested in joining us to help the bunnies of Guernsey." "We are hugely grateful to Ben from Isabelle Vets and Rick from Medimark who will be heading the sessions and there is no charge for any that would like to join us Tuesday from 130pm although donations would be very much appreciated." "If any coming to the training can share lifts where possible, walk or catch the number 61 bus it would be much appreciated as parking is limited." "We may have an extra speaker or two that might join us but we are awaiting confirmation."

Every year we hear of pet owners being faced with circumstances of their pets being injured or caused harm often through no fault but an accident. To help pet owners each year we hold a series of training courses and we have set dates for first aid courses for those interested in helping dogs and cats. The dates set for 2017 are: Cat First Aid 6.30pm - 8.45pm Wednesday 10th May 2017 - Ref - Cat 10/05 Dog First Aid 6.30pm - 8.45pm Thursday 18th May 2017 - Ref - Dog 18/05 Dog First Aid 6.30pm - 8.45pm Wednesday 22nd November 2017 - Ref - Dog 22/11 All first aid courses are a minimum £20 donation and you must book your place by the lunch time on the day of the training session. Within the sessions you get the chance to learn about what to do if you were faced with an emergency situation with your dog or cat. All participants receive handouts, a few goodies and a certificate. Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "The dog and cat first aid courses are designed to help those wanting to learn how to perform life saving first aid to their pets or animals they may come across." "We cover all aspects of first aid for pets from CPR to seizures and all for just £20 which goes towards helping the many animals in our care at the GSPCA."
