About the course

Vet Gwen Covey-Crump, of Langford Vets in Bristol, will cover pain neurophysiology and medical management options, while fellow vet Sarah Heath, of Behaviour Referrals in Chester, will explain the often subtle behaviour changes that can be shown by pets in acute or chronic pain. She will also discuss ways in which clinicians can better manage patients on strict rest, both in hospital and the home environment.

Lowri Davies, a vet from the Smart Veterinary Clinic in Swansea, will look at myofascial considerations and explore the concept of acupuncture as a tool for managing pain and behaviour.

The event is a joint venture by the British Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine Association and the British Veterinary Behaviour Association (BVBA), both affiliates of the BSAVA.
