This regulatory body is a farce, and only there to employ people at high salaries to justify any RCVS registered Vet in the UK's actions, be they negligent, dishonest, or befitting unprofessional conduct. They never find a Vet guilty of malpractice, professional negligence, nor any breach of their so called rules of professional conduct. This body is overseen by the owners of the Veterinary companies that dominate the UK market, i.e. Medivet, & Village Vet (owned by Linnaeus Group). The RCVS are a money making machine for all Vets in the UK and don't even train their vets how to do a Tubal Ligation, a Hysterectomy (to save the ovaries) or for male dogs a Vasectomy. (to avoid butchering female & male dogs of their primary organs). I find in the UK if it has ROYAL in front of it, avoid at all costs for the sake of your animal and or your wallet/purse.

If a doctor without a PhD who diagnoses and treats human patients was as unprofessional, clueless, careless, useless and as cruel as vets are allowed to be with rabbits, s/he would find her/himself in front of the GMC and in court. The veterinary profession does not deserve to have rabbits as patients given the outrageously poor standard of care permitted by the RCVS. I have already wasted time and effort reporting a vet (graduate of the RVC) to the RCVS. I was informed that, 'As a matter of law, the RCVS has no authority to adjudicate on allegations of negligence, that is to say, conduct falling below the standard to be expected, but not far below that standard'. Furthermore, I was informed that, 'The Veterinary Case Examiner advised that a middle ear abscess in a rabbit is a rare presentation'. It seems that the RCVS's veterinary advisor misled them/ is ignorant about rabbits and too arrogant to recognise that, as, 'External and middle ear infections are very common in pet rabbits... but sadly is often missed by... vets' (Keeble, E. 2016). The RCVS even accepted the vet's daft excuse as to why she did nothing when my rabbit's temperature was 37.4 Ë┼íC: 'She took (rabbit's) temperature rectally but did not insert this far enough and it was therefore likely to be inaccurate'! I won't be bothering to contact the RCVS again, as, clearly, it is not expected of vets to take the welfare of rabbits seriously. Rabbit owners pay vets the same as dog owners, yet it seems that the profession's expectations of vets when attempting to diagnose and treat rabbits are far, far lower than when dealing with dogs. I have concluded that rabbits are not in safe hands when under the 'care' of 'dog with a bit of cat on the side vets' aka small animal vets, but are in the hands of vets who have been allowed to graduate knowing next to nothing about rabbits and without the professionalism to ask or refer to a vet who has bothered to learn about the species.
