Feel It Festival: Howl - understanding pain and breathlessness in dogs
Sat 19 November 2016, 10:30 – 11:30 GMT
Howl: understanding pain and breathlessness in dogs
Dog-lover or owner? This talk and discussion with Andrea Holmes and Jo Murrell from Langford Veterinary Services could help you to recognise pain and breathlessness in your mutt, and save unnecessary suffering.
In a chance to learn more about your pet Jo and Andrea will discuss - with the help of dogs captured on film - how and why dogs may experience breathlessness, how to recognise signs of acute pain, and how a dog’s experience of pain, and the fear, anxiety and emotion that may accompany it, compares to that of humans.
Howl is a TV vet programme ‘in the flesh’. Think The Supervet, Vet on the Hill, Vets 24/7… The talk will be held outside (under cover!) and well-behaved dogs are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
