A Veterinary Behaviourist's Perspective: Dealing with the Difficult Canine Patient

About the Event
Have you always wanted to discover more about dog behaviour and hear about the role of a veterinary behaviourist? Then this event is for you! We will have certified veterinary behaviourist Carrie Toolie join us, to talk to us about her work but also about how we can better understand dog behaviour in practice and what we need to pay attention to/take into consideration.
She will discuss canine body language and explain the sink analogy, which is useful for us to better understand dog behaviour and where it originates from (don’t worry if you’ve never heard of it, it will make sense once she explains it!). She will also explain how to approach a tricky consult giving a couple of GP case scenarios for you to better understand these and she will cover what to say to caregivers in the situations. Finally, she will talk about where to refer difficult cases and who to ask for help in these.
The talk will last for about 40 minutes, after which you are free to leave or ask as many questions as you like!
