||A symposium on problem behaviour of pets and leisure horses, the science that helps understand the causes, and helps prevent or remedy them.
Stress, poor socialization and inappropriate choice of pet lead to welfare and behavioural problems in cats, dogs and over 80% of leisure horses. This can lead to a breakdown of the human-animal bond, contribute to unwanted pets, and can be an underlying factor in human and animal health problems. This symposium brings together experts in dogs, cats, and horses to help understand the links between behaviour and welfare and the science that helps veterinarians and behaviourists advise on prevention or cure.
Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion, chaired by Martin Whiting of the RVC. The Symposium will be followed by a reception. The event is free but all attendees must register.
