Essential oils: a new way to deal with behavioral problems?

presented by
Dr Stefania Uccheddu.
Sunday 28th October 2018, 19:00 – 20:00 hours (GMT)

  • Aromatherapy is the use of concentrated essential oils to treat various diseases.
  • Some of these essential oils are currently used in human medicine in the management of chronic pain, depression, anxiety, some cognitive disorders, insomnia, and stress related disorders.
  • Research shows the effectiveness of using essential oils such as lavender and chamomile in improving animal welfare.
  • As well as other types of environmental and social enrichment, the use of the appropriate olfactory stimulation with essential oils seems a promising aid in preventing or reducing stress and in behavioural management in dogs. It may become part of the routine management for veterinarians.
  • During the webinar, we are going to explore the use of essential oils in behavioural medicine with a scientific but also practical point of view .

 

Webinar joining instructions will be sent out 48 hours before the event. If you do not receive these please email Nikki@icb.global.

Age-related cognitive decline in family dogs

Dogs begin to show behavioural and cognitive signs linked to ageing starting from the age of six. This is a progressive process, so much so that up one third of 11-12 years-old dogs show and 70% of dogs aged 15-16 show signs that are similar to the human Alzheimer disease. In order to study dogs’ ageing process, researchers have been focused, so far, mostly on laboratory dogs. These, however, differ from the dogs living with humans (“family dogs”) in terms of experiences, genetics and sometimes their behaviour. I will describe the latest findings regarding the assessment of cognitive and behavioural changes in aged family dogs, considerations regarding their welfare and quality of life and potential interventions aiming at slowing down the cognitive and behavioural decline of aged family dogs.
