“Dealing With Behaviour Problems Within The 10 Minute Consult – Is It Possible?”

  • Sarah Heath BVSc DipECAWBM(BM) CCAB MRCVS, RCVS and European Veterinary Specialist in Behavioural Medicine (Companion Animals)

One of the main reasons that is given for the poor level of behavioural medicine advice offered by veterinary practices is a lack of time. Accurately diagnosing behavioural conditions and advising on appropriate management and treatment approaches does indeed take time. However, there is a still an important role for the general practice in the field of behavioural medicine. The ability to identify signs of emotional states in patients, and signs of behavioural concerns in their owners, can help veterinary practices to offer timely and beneficial advice. This presentation will discuss what can, and what cannot, be achieved in a routine veterinary consultation.
