A detailed guide to recognising discomfort in dogs
There are numerous behavioural and physical signs that can indicate discomfort in dogs, many of which go undetected, simply because they are very subtle, or we don’t know what to look for. Early detection of problems ensures the highest level of welfare for our canine friends and means that appropriate measures can be taken to prevent a worsening of the issue. This is certainly not exclusive to competition dogs and Rachel will explain why the observation skills are also invaluable for our companion dogs.
Rachel, a qualified McTimoney Practitioner and Canine Behaviour Specialist, will lead attendees through an interactive seminar. Using some fascinating case studies, Rachel will draw together years of experience and talk about the finer, less obvious details, which are so often over-looked but are in fact easy to observe.
Topics to be covered include:
Defining discomfort Behavioural changes
Physical observations The environment Acute vs chronic Pain
The effects of stress – positive and negative Detailed case studies
Prevention and treatments Communication with Veterinary Surgeons
In the afternoon, two pre-selected attendees and their canine companions will be invited to take part in a practical session, which all attendees will be able to observe and take part in.
If you would like us to consider your dog for the practical session in the afternoon, please email email@example.com with details of your dog.
