Integrating Behavioural Medicine into First Opinion Practice
This podcast will discuss the importance of recognising and safeguarding emotional health in companion animals and the role that the first opinion veterinary practice can play in that process.
Potential obstacles to providing a behavioural medicine service will be discussed and solutions suggested.
The potential impact of the veterinary practice visit on the emotional health of patients will be considered and practical advice offered as to how to minimise negative impact and optimise the veterinary visit experience for patients, clients and practice staff.
