Problematic Behaviours in Companion Animals
eCPD Tutorial with Francesca Riccomini
This 50 minute eCPD tutorial will define behaviour problems and the subsequent consequences for pets and people. It will discuss the complications associated with diagnosing problem behaviours, the common themes underlying such problems, and most importantly, what nurses can do to help. Problematic behaviour in companion animals often undermines the pet-owning experience and is not an uncommon cause of relinquishment and euthanasia. Veterinary staff and nurses in particular have a vitally important role to play in making a positive impact on these depressing statistics.
