21 October 2020, 7PM – 9PM, Tickets R250 (members) R350 (non-members)
Talk Synopsis: Behaviourists and trainers, like veterinarians, have at the heart of their work, the bond between the animal and their owner. End of life decisions can be extremely hard for people to make, especially when other factors such as intractable behavioural problems, risk due to aggression or overall quality of life need to be considered. This webinar will discuss aspects relating to euthanasia of companion animals including quality of life assessments, broaching the topic with owners and practical issues such as home euthanasia, low stress handling for euthanasia and managing unmanageable animals.
