When investigating and treating a behaviour issue, it is essential that good, factual records are obtained and maintained. These 'case history' records are used for accurate diagnosis, supporting clients in their aims, as well as forming a plan of treatment for the dog or cat.
In this webinar we explore methods of history taking, alongside case studies illustrating how client perception influences the information. The 'Whys & Wherefores of Behavioural Data' is an intermediate level presentation. 

Webinar Objectives

  • Understand what a 'case history' is and why it is important
  • 'Live interview' skills - Learn how to ask the right questions at the right time.
  • Understand a behaviour case questionnaire - the timeline and detailed screening
  • Understand how to carry out detailed observation of client and animal - the facts and recording data
  • Understand risk assessment as part of case history.
  • Develop your skills in data recording and observation, helping accurate diagnosis and treatment/training plans.
