Veterinary CPD & Training

Veterinary CPD and training is available for receptionists, nurses and vets to improve behavioural awareness in the veterinary practice. These may be a one-off session, or a four or six session course (depending on the level of detail required) and can be conducted as a whole day or as lunch-and-learn sessions. Please contact me to have a chat about your specific needs and prices. The aim is to:

  • Improve management of animals with behaviour problems in the veterinary practice
  • Provide knowledge of behaviour in order to deliver emergency behavioural advice to clients
  • Understand the importance of when to refer a behaviour case and who is appropriate to refer to
  • Provide information on body language, communication and how animals learn and how this can be applied in the veterinary context
  • Emphasise the importance of problem prevention and how this can be applied to puppy and kitten consults.
  • Training of staff running puppy parties to ensure accurate advice is given and practical/observational skills are up-to-date.
