Insight into dog and cat behaviour
1 Donald Mackintosh Way, Scrivener Drive
About this course
The day kicks off with a session entitled ‘stress and the behavioural impact on pets and owners.’ Led by experienced animal behaviourist Karen Wild, this session looks at what happens when the pet-owner relationship breaks down.
It will consider what might be stressful for a pet, what are the impacts on the animal’s behaviour, and how might we assist owners in recognising it.
Finally, the session will see what practitioners can do to reduce stress in these animals and their owners.
The afternoon will focus on how a cat’s behaviour changes with age. Hosted by cat behaviour councillor Vicky Halls, this informative session explores common problems found in the elderly cat and how to manage them at home.
It will discuss how to establish a cat-friendly home for the elderly, how to manage osteoarthritis at home, and how to manage cognitive dysfunction. It will also advise on how to give advice about the elderly cat that soils in the home.
The event includes lunch and there will be several opportunities for Q&A sessions with the speakers. Taking place on Thursday, 23 June, the day will run from 9:30-4:30pm at a cost of £155.00 (discounts are available for multiple bookings and existing customers).
