This webinar will discuss the impact of behavioural awareness on the welfare of patients during the veterinary experience.
One of the main reasons for general veterinary practices being reluctant to offer behavioural services is a perception that it takes too much time. Individual consultations for specific behavioural presentations are indeed time consuming but this webinar will consider the many other opportunities for practices to be behaviourally aware and make a positive impact on the emotional health and well being of their patients. It will discuss the impact of behavioural awareness on the welfare of patients during the veterinary experience and on the way in which clinical decisions are made and physical health cases are managed.
