A talk on Nutrition and Behaviour in dogs!

Presented by Dr. Nick Thompson MRCVS

Dr. Thompson is going to be talking about the relationship between food and behaviour. This often over-looked area is fascinating, fun and simple to get your head round. And it can really make a difference to behaviour in dogs. 

Dr. Thompson will cover behaviour and the microbiome, obesity, human nutrition/behaviour clues and how to do your own research in raw food. Time permitting, he will also discuss how thyroid disease in dogs can affect behaviour and nutrition.
