When the Science Hits the Fan


Book your ticket

This year, we are examining the science behind raw feeding.

Our 2020 conference is a little different as like so many events this year, we have moved online.  It’s a great opportunity for RFVS to share knowledge from our team and invited speakers with members, paraprofessionals and keen pet owners all over the world.

The programme is below.  As well as the formal presentations, the speakers will be discussing their talks with each other between the presentations.

You will be able to ask questions by submitting them through the Zoom Chat facility.  Questions will be answered at the end of each presentation. 

You will receive a PDF of the proceedings and the link to join the Zoom Webinar on Thursday 12th November.

A big THANK YOU to all of our supporters, without whose generous support the RFVS would not exist. View our fantastic supporters here.
