UK vets to improve their knowledge of cat behavior — 2 Comments

  1. Thank you so much for posting this news. I’ve taken a look at some of the information on the web site and it’s interesting reading.

    It can only be a positive move if vets are encouraged to learn more about cat behaviour. Some of the problems currently being treated with medication, may be better served with behavioural solutions. Hopefully it should also make them better at handling nervous cats in the clinic. I’ve seen for myself, how a calm, but confident vet can make the experience a lot less stressful for the cat themselves.

    • Good thoughts. I strongly favour vets being expert at cat behavior. I am sure it will improve cat welfare for all kinds of reasons. A important one is that a vet can rectify any misconceptions a cat owner may have about cat behavior and focus more on human behavior where most of the problems are.
