A talk on Nutrition and Behavior in dogs!

Presented by Dr. Nick Thompson MRCVS

Dr. Thompson is going to be talking about the relationship between food and behavior. This often over-looked area is fascinating, fun and simple to get your head round. And it can really make a difference to behavior in dogs.  Dr. Thompson will cover behavior and the microbiome, obesity, human nutrition/behavior clues and how to do your own research in raw food. Time permitting, he will also discuss how thyroid disease in dogs can affect behavior and nutrition.
