Companion Animal Behaviour - 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 advice for new puppies, kittens and rabbits, medical differentials for problems, interpreting body language and improving welfare during handling and hospitalisation.
