Webinar 1: Tuesday, September 15, 2020; 4:00–5:00 pm ADT: Attachment in cats and dogs:  What can the data tell us?  “Attachment” has become a buzzword in dog training and in veterinary behaviour medicine.  Given that separation anxiety is the single most common diagnosis in pet dogs in North America and second only to all aggression diagnoses in prevalence, understanding what we know about attachment matters and has direct implications for how we treat troubled patients.

Webinar 2: Tuesday, September 29, 2020; 4:00–5:00 pm ADT: We want treatment to be humane, but shouldn’t treatment “work”?  Which treatments have known efficacy, which pose risks, and when should we think “diet” vs. “drugs”. Link to register:  https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/114952177056

Webinar 3: Tuesday, October 13, 2020; 4:00–5:00 pm ADT: What’s new, hot and important in the veterinary behaviour and behavioural medicine literature? The best of the veterinary behaviour and behavioural medicine literature is in journals not readily accessible to busy veterinary teams. We’ll review a subset of recent hot publications with surprising findings that have clinical applications that are meaningful for your patients.
