About the webinar

The management of behavioural disorders is sometimes multi-modal, including behavioural modifications and medications. In some of these disorders, dietary management can also be part of the overall treatment. During this webinar we will discuss the available evidence regarding nutritional modifications on canine behaviour, including the effect of antioxidants, medium chain fatty acids and alfa-casozepine on behavioural problems and cognition.

El manejo de los desórdenes del comportamiento es en la mayoría de los casos multimodal, incluyendo modificaciones comportamentales y medicación. En algunos de estos problemas, el manejo dietético puede ser útil como parte del tratamiento combinado. Durante este webinar discutiremos la evidencia disponible sobre el efecto de diferentes estrategias nutricionales, incluyendo el efecto de los antioxidantes, triglicéridos de cadena media, y alfa-casozepina, en desordenes de la conducta y cognición.
