About this course

This webinar will consider the various ways in which dogs communicate that they are in pain and emphasise the importance of effective pain management in the field of behavioural medicine.

Chronic pain is a recognised factor in behavioural change in dogs but it can be very hard to identify. This webinar will explore the importance of recognising that pain. Failure to listen to our patients with our eyes as well as our ears, can run the risk of chronic pain being left undiagnosed and untreated.
