Welcome to the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society


We’re a group of motivated vets and vet nurses with a common interest in raw feeding and species appropriate nutrition in dogs and cats.

We welcome vets, vet nurses and vet techs from around the world to join us in our quest to learn and educate in this fascinating and essential topic.

Our Mission

To promote the principles and practical aspects of species-appropriate nutrition, through education of veterinary professionals
and the pet-owning public.

As practising veterinary surgeons it is important we give clients clear, practical feeding strategies they can follow in their busy lives. In a biologically- ideal world every hunting carnivore would be fed on live prey. Clearly this is socially un-acceptable, morally questionable and impractical. A spectrum of ‘lesser’ alternatives are available, and there will always be a trade-off between convenience, ideology, cost and practicalities. What is right for one pet owner may not work for another. So let’s not talk in ‘definites’ – there is no right or wrong, simply different ways of improving our pets nutrition to greater or lesser degrees.

    From ‘leading edge’ to good old ‘basic tuition’ on raw food feeding. There will be something for everyone.

    USA, New Zealand and the UK: three of the many countries that will be represented at the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society Annual International Conference in Gloucestershire on 5th November 2017.

    Nutrition, Metabolism and Bacteriological experts from:
    Ketopet, Texas
    AgResearch in New Zealand
    Liverpool University

  • will gather at the beautiful Hartpury College near Gloucester to investigate together leading edge research and findings in the field of Species Appropriate feeding.

    In addition, a busy second stream will collect raw feeding vets and vet nurses from all around the country to tell you how THEY feed raw, how they integrate it into successful veterinary practice and the results they see when they feed a responsible raw diet.

    Vet nurses, vets and vet techs (for our US colleagues) are all welcome to share the smorgasbord of knowledge on offer at this unique conference.

    Your fee will include a really good lunch, and plenty teas, coffees and treats.
