This is a series of four lectures with Dr Sarah Heath, suitable for both vets and nurses, considering the relationship between physical and emotional health, and the potential for distress to play a part in the aetiology of certain medical conditions, such as feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC).

The role of pain in behavioural presentations will also be discussed. A behavioural approach to the investigation of feline medical cases will be outlined, with advice on how to consider emotional factors when taking a history and how to advise clients so that they can meet their cat’s environmental needs and optimise their emotional health.
