Recorded Webinars

A network perspective on animal behaviour and welfare

Tom Rowland, MSc CCAB


Available Until 2 June 2021 : £30.00

Tom is currently completing a PhD at the Animal Behaviour, Cognition & Welfare Group at the University of Lincoln. He will explore how cognitive, behavioural, and physiological measures are not necessarily 'indicators' of underlying unobservable states in animals. Rather, states emerge because cognitive, behavioural, and physiological components mutually interact and influence each other within a network system. This has many important implications for how we think about animal welfare and how we go about changing it. Tom will discuss how this novel network approach could be applied to clinical behaviour practice.

10 Years of the PAW Report: surveillance data on the behaviour and welfare of the UK’s pet dogs, cats, and rabbits.

Rachel Malkani and Emma Tipton


Available Until 9 August 2021 : £30.00

Published annually since 2011, the PDSA Animal Wellbeing (PAW) Report provides UK companion animal welfare surveillance to identify trends and priorities, and to promote and monitor change. The 2020 report identified trends over the last decade in the provision of the 5 Welfare Needs of UK pets. Additionally, a post-lockdown survey provided early insights on the impacts of COVID-19 restrictions on pet wellbeing. The surveys were conducted with YouGov, using their panel of over a million adults living in the UK to give nationally representative findings. Further data were collected from the veterinary professions to understand how welfare is perceived by those working in veterinary practice. We will discuss the changes of dog, cat, and rabbit welfare data, with a focus on behavioural impacts that have changed over the 10 years of the PAW Report and also where findings have remained consistent. Additionally, we will report on how the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions have affect pet behaviour.

Differential Diagnosis

Prof Daniel Mills, University of Lincoln

Available Until 12 November 2023 : Members Only

There is a need in our profession for a clear understanding of systematic methodology and the principles of differential diagnosis (what is it and what it is not). In this interactive session, Daniel Mills will explain the differential diagnosis protocol used at the University of Lincoln and answer questions. It is anticipated that this learning could be used, for example, to assist FABC members in writing up case reports in a format suitable for publication, participation in research, and to enable comparisons to be made across practitioners in a standardised way.

Why should behaviourists care about epilepsy

Rowena Packer

This webinar will explore the potential importance of canine epilepsy to behaviourists, including recent research findings of the impact of epilepsy on behaviour, cognition and welfare in dogs.
