The British Veterinary Behaviour Association (BVBA) has announced a pre-BSAVA Congress study day.
Taking place in Birmingham on April 2, 2014, the one-day symposium entitled “Aggression – medical or mental?” will feature talks on cats, dogs and birds from vets including Danielle Gunn-Moore, Sarah Heath and John Chitty.
Plymouth vet and BVBA member Caroline Bower encouraged vets and nurses to attend.
“Our speakers will explore how we approach the diagnosis and management of aggression in dogs, cats and caged birds, with particular reference to establishing the underlying cause,” she said.
“For anyone with an interest in pet behaviour, this is an event you should not miss.”
She added: “We are delighted to welcome Danielle Gunn-Moore and Sarah Heath, John Chitty, Gary Landsberg and Clare Rusbridge, who will discuss important medical and behavioural differential diagnoses, illustrating their points using case examples and leading us to a greater understanding of aggression in cats, dogs and caged birds.
“All our speakers are accomplished and experienced in their field, and anyone attending this study day can expect to be well entertained, as well as taking home plenty of useful advice.”
