What's Behaviour Got To Do With It? Conference (OnDemand)

What's Behaviour Got To Do With It? Conference (OnDemand)

Overcome FoMO. We are pleased to inform that you can now purchase an all-access pass to watch all conference lectures on-demand. The CPD points continue to be awarded for on-demand viewing.

Veterinary best practice means we should consider an animal’s health and wellbeing in it's entirety rather than dealing with issues in isolation. Behaviour is an important consideration in every aspect of a patient’s welfare. Emotions can influence the development of medical conditions, and illness may change behaviour.

What’s Behaviour Got To Do With It? was a virtual event like no other – where specialists in veterinary behavioural medicine Kersti Seksel and the entertaining and energetic Gonçalo da Graça Pereira were joined by a host of other presenters from the fields of behaviour, medicine, surgery, ophthalmology and dermatology. Over 4 packed and interactive days, they explored many commonly encountered behavioural challenges and frustrations and consider the role of behaviour in an animal’s total wellbeing – and provide their views on 'What’s Behaviour Got to Do With It…?'
