Being able to give appropriate behavioural advice can reduce the chances of behaviour problems occurring or help owners deal with problems effectively. This is important both for the welfare of the animal and also for maintaining the pet-owner bond which helps to keep pets in the home. Behavioural awareness can also improve how animals are handled and managed in the veterinary surgery, helping to ensure they remain happy to come into, and be handled in, the surgery. This makes it easier to give them the veterinary care they need, encouraging owners to remain bonded to your practice and to bring their pets in for treatment when it is needed.<br />\nFocusing on dogs, this day will cover the most important aspects of behaviour at different stages of life from before birth through puppyhood, adolescence, adulthood and into old age. We will include plenty of practical strategies to help you support your canine clients, including breeders and owners, to ensure the well-being of their dogs and reduce the chances of behaviour problems occurring.<br />\nThis day is aimed at enabling vets and nurses in general practice to provide a whole practice behavioural support package for dogs and their owners.<br />\n&nbsp;<br />\n<strong>Speakers</strong>:<br />\n<strong>Elaine Henley:</strong>&nbsp;Advice for breeders - Care of the bitch and pups from before birth and during early puppyhood<br />\n<strong>Claire Hargrave</strong>:&nbsp;Pups - From entering new home until around 20 weeks of age<br />\n<strong>Helen Zulch</strong>: From puberty to maturity<br />\n<strong>Caroline Warnes:&nbsp;</strong>Behaviour in elderly dogs<br />\n&nbsp;<br />\n<strong>Conference \'Nitty Gritty\'</strong><br />\n<strong>Prices</strong><br />\nVeterinary Surgeons and Standard non-Member Early Bird rate (to 25 August 2017): &pound;80<br />\nAPBC Member Early Bird rate (to 25 August 2017): &pound;60<br />\nVeterinary Surgeons and Standard non-member price: &pound;90<br />\nAPBC member price: &pound;70<br />\nVeterinary Nurse with Bursary: &pound;75 - APBC has made available a limited number of bursary places to reduce the cost of the event for veterinary nurses.

  • APBC: Behaviour Essentials for Veterinary Practices: Effective strategies to support your canine clients throughout their lifetimes, from pups to pensioners

    25/10/2017-25/10/2017

    Venue: Holiday Inn Coventry M6 J2, Hinckley Road, Walsgrave, Coventry CV2 2HP

    Behaviour essentials for veterinary practices: effective strategies to support your canine clients throughout their lifetimes, from pups to pensioners.
    Understanding behaviour can benefit veterinary practices in many ways. Being able to give appropriate behavioural advice can reduce the chances of behaviour problems occurring or help owners deal with problems effectively. This is important both for the welfare of the animal and also for maintaining the pet-owner bond which helps to keep pets in the home. Behavioural awareness can also improve how animals are handled and managed in the veterinary surgery, helping to ensure they remain happy to come into, and be handled in, the surgery. This makes it easier to give them the veterinary care they need, encouraging owners to remain bonded to your practice and to bring their pets in for treatment when it is needed.
    Focusing on dogs, this day will cover the most important aspects of behaviour at different stages of life from before birth through puppyhood, adolescence, adulthood and into old age. We will include plenty of practical strategies to help you support your canine clients, including breeders and owners, to ensure the well-being of their dogs and reduce the chances of behaviour problems occurring.
    This day is aimed at enabling vets and nurses in general practice to provide a whole practice behavioural support package for dogs and their owners.
     
    Speakers:
    Elaine Henley: Advice for breeders - Care of the bitch and pups from before birth and during early puppyhood
    Claire Hargrave: Pups - From entering new home until around 20 weeks of age
