About the course

Sponsored by Royal Canin

Obesity is a disease affecting a significant percentage of the pet population and can have an appreciable negative effect on the quality of life of these animals. Dealing with the obese patient in the veterinary practice can be challenging from the point of recognition and acknowledgement of the problem right through to management and treatment. This one day course will look at the obesity challenge from both a behavioural and medical perspective.
It will consider how an understanding of natural species specific feeding behaviour can influence obesity risk, consider the selection of appropriate diet in terms of prevention and resolution of obesity issues and discuss the role of behavioural understanding in providing appropriate lifestyles which encourage adequate energy consumption. Using a combination of lectures, interactive workshops and case discussions the course will offer advice on how to improve the service to obese patients and their owners.
