Are you Raw Curious 2022?

With the popularity of last year’s ‘Are You Raw Curious?’ event, and with the ever-increasing numbers of veterinary professional recommending raw, and pet owners feeding raw, we at the RFVS have decided to host this event again this year for FREE (for one day only) 14th May 2022.

This year we have 8 speakers and therefore 8 videos, full of incredible information for Vets, Nurses, pet owners, especially for those at the beginning of their journey, or, like the title suggest, are just curious about raw feeding.
So, for one day only, these will be completely FREE, and then available to purchase online. So ‘SAVE THE DATE’ and look forward to a wealth of knowledge coming your way!


Dr Barbara Royal

No really, what do you mean by raw food?
Barbara will explain the very important reason why we are holding this event, the benefits of raw feeding, the advantages of NOT cooking good food, the care that needs to be taken in storing, handling and preparing raw food and the changes that should be expected in raw fed pets.

Katie McCaul and Moddie Lambert

Raw Food - Finding a Balance
Feeding a balanced raw diet is one of the main concerns for many veterinary professionals. In this talk we will identify what we need to look for in a commercial raw diet  as well as how to ensure owners a feeding a balanced home made raw food.  We also look at feeding amounts and briefly look at life stages. The aim of this talk is to equip you with enough knowledge to support raw feeding owners.

Dr Brendan Clarke and Dr Amaya Espindola

Mixing it with the best of them . . . 
This is an introduction into how to get started from puppies to the elderly, from the well to the sick.  It IS possible to introduce them all to the most appropriate diet for good health.  Amaya is tagging along with Brendan to talk about how to introduce raw food to cats, not just the steps but to really understand how this can be an emotional process for the cat.

Dr Nick Thompson

Food Safety & Canine Heath (emphasis on Microbiological Hazards)

  • How safe is raw food?
  • Is it more or less risky than ultra-processed food?
  • Are bacteria and parasites a problem in raw food? which ones?
  • Do people or pets get food poisoning/infection from raw food?
  • In which scenerios whould we NOT advise raw food for pets? e.g. immunosuppressed animals or owners, or households with young children?
  • Should we isolate veterinary patients on raw food if they are admitted to hospital?
  • What is RawSAFE?

Dr Christian Vergara

Bones - The Polemic Issue in Raw Diets

We will discuss the use of bones in diet. Why they are so conflictive in the veterinarian world, which bones are for the diet itself and which bones are for recreational use?

Dr Neus Candela DVM

Raw Food and Disease: When It Is Suitable and When It Is Not
Fresh food is always best. The classic raw food approach is great and works for most pets but it must be modified in the face of certain health issues or disease. Dr Neus Candela will share her clinical experience and knowledge to help the clinician know when those changes are necessary.

Are You Raw Curious?

FREE Online Spring Event – 14th May 2022

We all have clients making this lifestyle choice for their pets and we all have a responsibility to have enough knowledge to discuss their choice respectfully.  We at least need to know how to be sure they are doing a good job and what advice to give if they are not.

Join us on Saturday 29th May 2021 for the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society's FREE online event to learn the basics, to learn how to tell fact from fiction and to learn where to turn when you need more information.

The event will be recorded and available for purchase after the event, with English or Spanish subtitles.
There will be a link posted here soon to the event via Zoom, so watch this space.
