The interplay between emotional and physical health

About the course

Behavioural medicine is a relatively new discipline within the veterinary profession and there are still a number of practices who do not consider that they offer a service to their clients in this field. However, the truth is that every veterinary practice is involved in behavioural medicine on a daily basis. Owners not only report behavioural change in their pets as a primary concern but also as part of the history relating to their concerns over their pet’s physical health. Understanding the significance of this behavioural information enhances the detection of physical illness but it is also important to remember that physical ill health can be an indicator of compromised emotional health. This presentation will look at the bilateral relationship between emotion and physical health and consider how consideration of both can help to improve the service that veterinary practices offer to their patients.
