The intersection between behaviour and nutrition

Throughout the domestication process, very early 'pet parents' became aware of the influence of food on behaviour. We now have evidence to show that what we feed and how we feed has a definitive impact on the behavioural health of our modern pets. In this 90 minute presentation, Sarah Heath will explore the role of food in the initiation,management and resolution of unwanted behaviours.
