Nutritional Roadshow set for vet students

A nutritional roadshow, featuring Behavioural Medicine specialist, Sarah Heath, will take place thanks to ROYAL CANIN.

The annual roadshow will visit all nine vet schools across the UK and Ireland from 10 October  to 15 November and will feature an interactive lecture exploring the role of food in the initiation, management and resolution of unwanted behaviours in cats and dogs.

Lee Danks, scientific affairs manager for ROYAL CANIN, commented: “Our 2017 roadshow is an offering to the entire Vet Student Network, meaning that no matter where they’re studying, every vet student (and SVNs on the same campus) can learn a lot more about how and what we feed our pets can influence their behaviour.

“We’ll kick off in Cambridge and follow a convoluted path across, up and down the country, including a visit across to University College Dublin.

“Sarah Heath is known for delivering truly engaging lectures which reform the way clinicians manage patients and advise clients facing troublesome scenarios, which often compromise the behavioural health of the pets we share our lives with.”
