Feline Behaviour TimeOnline

Feline Behaviour TimeOnline
The aim of this course is to increase awareness of feline behavioural medicine and educate about normal feline behaviour and how it influences the lives of domestic cats.

 

There will be emphasis on the importance of recognising and controlling stress in domestic cats and the way in which this impacts on general veterinary practice.

Discussion of the interplay between emotional and physical disease will be an important part of the course. Participants will be encouraged to consider feline welfare in the context of feline behavioural medicine.


Past Participant:

Thoroughly enjoyed the Feline Behaviour Course. Full of information that I can put to use straight away in practice. Thanks Dr Sarah Heath for a great course.

Would highly recommend Dr Sarah Heath's Feline Behaviour course through CVE to all vet staff and anyone involved in the care of felines and client education.  It was extremely informative, science based and value for money.
