I downloaded it here when I was working at my old practice and I was named rabbit advocate to try and become a silver practice - http://rabbitwelfare.co.uk/rabbit-vets/rwaf-vet-list-application/

I remember a separate rabbit waiting area and hospitalisation was a must (maybe just for gold) and questions about protocols such as anaesthesia, dental (conscious/what equipment) and must recommend both vaccines and neutering :)

Hi! Iím a nurse at a Silver Rabbit Friendly practice. We had a lengthy questionnaire that asked us numbers of rabbits we neuter, anaesthetic protocols, anaesthetic monitoring equipment, OOHs, dental equipment, imaging equipment, analgesic protocols.

Also asked our protocols for guts stasis, pictures of waiting rooms/kennels.

And staff members relevant CPD records, further qualifications etc

Itís a long process!

thats all very re-assurring, thanks so much for your reply . Its clearly not to be sniffed at. I wonder what % of vets have accreditation?

The vet we took Plumpkin to today had a gold star award and I could see why. Waiting room just for exotics, very well equipped and Sonya's knowledge of rabbits seriously next level.

Thank you for posting this infomation. I may have found a decent vet for Beauty and Harlequin which the old list didnít show.
