This week’s CUVZS talk will be “How can we stem the tide of unsuitable pets?”, by Alan Hewitt from Morley Exotic Animal Rescue.

“I will be basing the talk around the governments review into pet ownership where the emphasis was on exotic pets, and the potential proposals discussed to limit or license ownership. Some incredible facts were revealed and a huge array of arguments at the recent All Party Parliamentary Group on Animal Welfare meeting at the House of Commons. I was present as a member of the group and took part and this is the first step towards future legislation. In essence then I will discuss the moral and ethical debate and the probable proposed legislation, and its impact on the animal and pet industries. I am looking forward to it and I expect lively disagreement among those attending, just as there was in parliament!”.

Alan will also be bringing along a skunk and a giant python from the centre, so there will be LIVE ANIMALS (just in case you needed any more convincing!)

As always, the talk starts at 6:30pm (6:15 for cake), free for members/£1 for non-members.


This week’s talk is being given by Livia Benato, who is coming to talk to us about some interesting small mammal case studies, hopefully looking at a range of small furry species.

Livia is a European Recognised Specialist in Small Mammal Medicine. She completed a residency at Edinburgh Vet School in rabbit and exotic animal medicine, worked for a year as Veterinary Officer for Chester Zoo and as a Univeristy Clinician at Glasgow Vet School. She now works as a small mammal and exotics Veterinary Associate at CityVets in Exeter.
This should be a really interesting, clinically relevant talk, so come along to LT2 at 6:30pm (6:15 for cake!). It’s free for members/£1 for non-members.
Click attending on the fb event here, so we know how much cake to bring!
