"Brilliant course, very well ran, feel a lot happier approaching patients who are unhappy with being in the hospital and trying to create a positive experience. Excellent value for money"
Kirstie Connor, RVN
"Even though I've been in practice since just after the earth's crust cooled, I gained a lot of useful information about how to read and respond to small animal communication signals. The case studies were also very helpful. "
Rachel Massey, BVSc
"Fantastic course, I feel much more in control and up to date and better able to assist clients in improving their animals behaviour and welfare. Would thoroughly recommend. "
Christine Beaver, BVSc

Companion Animal Behaviour for General Practice - Part 1

Many vets’ and vet nurses’ education on behaviour was somewhat limited and people can often feel out of their depth when clients ask about behaviour problems or when they are faced with an aggressive animal in practice. This course will focus on teaching delegates about behaviour that is primarily relevant to the general practitioner and the veterinary nurse. It will cover topics such as crucial preventative behavioural advice for new puppies, kittens and rabbits, medical differentials for behaviour problems, interpreting body language and improving welfare during handling and hospitalisation.

Vet CPD Online Tutored Courses take approximately 8 hours to complete and can be completed at your own pace and at any time over the course’s 3-week period. There are downloadable course notes and clinical cases to work through, plus – what makes our courses unique – a busy clinical forum where questions and answers are posted and where delegates have access to the instructor for the duration of the course. This always generates some lively discussions and the idea that no one should leave a course with any unanswered questions.

At the end of the course there is a final exam plus a Certificate of Completion for your CPD records.
