About this course
Would you like to enhance your understanding of feline emotional health and its impact on clinical behaviour?
This course will explore the importance of behavioural medicine in feline practice. It will discuss normal feline behaviour as it relates to misunderstanding and misconceptions, which can influence clinical behavioural presentations. Consideration of the feline environmental needs will be related to the concept of environmental optimisation and the role that plays in managing feline cases, both within behavioural and internal medicine. There will be discussion of the veterinary practice role in educating feline caregivers in order to reduce the incidence of behavioural problems in the domestic cat population and reduce the impact of emotional distress on physical health of feline patients. Consideration will be given to some of the common feline behaviour presentations in general veterinary practice both in terms of concerns raised by caregivers about their pet’s behaviour at home and in relation to the welfare of feline patients during their veterinary visits.
