Webinar: 10 behaviour tips for the veterinary team

May 9 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Behaviour may be a topic that conjures up dread but it doesn’t have to be. The science of dog and cat cognition, neurodevelopment, personality and welfare is progressing at a rapid rate and it can be hard to stay up to date with the ways that this should be changing how we work. In this talk, we will delve into 10 practical things that you can do in practice to support your patients’ mental and emotional health, make things safer for you and your team, and turn tucked tails and hisses into wags and purrs.
