An integrative approach to behaviour cases with Dr Kate Lindsey (Free Podcast)

Dr Kate Lindsey is a veterinarian who has had a lifelong fascination with animals and their behaviour. After feeling confused and uncomfortable with the high rates of euthanasia due to behavioural reasons seen in veterinary practice, Kate pursued further studies in this field and founded Kalmpets in Perth, WA. 

Dr Sarah Howard discusses with Dr Kate Lindsay emerging research in the field of behavioural medicine and the crossover between canine and human mental illnesses. We then jump into the specifics of how she uses diet and supplements to aid in the management of her cases.

1 Feb 2020 to 30 Nov 2021 - Feline Medicine ISFM (Distance Education)

Are you a veterinarian who wants to gain the special skills required for those tricky feline patients?

An unwell cat poses many unique challenges to the small animal practitioner and the difference between managing canine and feline patients (in both the art and the science of veterinary medicine) is well recognised.

This course is designed to reinforce, deepen and broaden your knowledge of feline medicine in a practical, interactive and enjoyable way. In addition, it will provide you with valuable information to make your practice more ‘feline friendly’.
This course is now delivered online (2 x 2-Day Workshops, 1 per year) over 2 years instead of one to enable busy veterinarians to manage this course.

Early Bird ends on 31st October 2019.
