Veterinary practice involves not just treating animals, but also dealing with their owners. In this webinar we will discuss why people choose to keep fish and how this is related to public attitudes about fish. In particular, we will cover why fish owners are often reluctant to seek professional veterinary help and how this could be changed. You will learn key theories and strategies about human behaviour, and how you can evaluate, accommodate, influence and improve outcomes for you, the client, and the health and well-being of the client’s animals.

Join us for a free webinar on Thursday May 07, 2015 at 9:00 PM AWST (Perth, Western Australia, +8 GMT).
