About the course

Obesity is a growing and serious problem in companion animals, and rabbits are no exception. As in other species, obesity results from an imbalance between calorie intake and energy use and so is a result of both dietary and husbandry factors. It does have consequences and will have effects on the musculoskeletal system and cardiovascular systems in particular. The diet to produce obesity will likely have other effects on dentition and gut function. The lack of exercise to produce obesity may also result in skeletal atrophy and lack of muscle tone/ strength. As a consequence, obesity can have a profound effect on quality of life and longevity. This webinar will look at the underlying factors responsible for the rise in rabbit obesity as well as its recognition, likely consequences and control
