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.

The relationship between physical health and behaviour

Dr. Sarah Penturn BSc(Hons) BVM&S MRCVS, ECAWBM Resident in Veterinary Behavioural Medicine


Available Until 6 April 2021 : £30.00

Physical health and behavioural health are tightly intertwined, and best clinical outcomes for behaviour patients depend on cooperation between the veterinary surgeon and behaviourist. Using case examples, we will explore how pain and disease can be the underlying cause or a contributing factor for the development and/or maintenance of behaviour problems. And conversely, how behaviour problems, and associated stress, can contribute to or exacerbate many chronic diseases. This talk will also delve into the multidimensional nature of pain, exploring how pain is both a complex sensory and emotional experience, which can be difficult to recognise and treat. We will discuss ‘red flags’ for pain in behaviour histories, how to bring veterinary surgeons on board, as well as behaviour modification strategies to change learned associations.

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.
