Our bond with companion animals in a changing world
The global pandemic has changed our world in so many ways in the last year. But even before we had ever heard of COVID-19, our world was changing in ways that impact our lives and the way we relate to our companion animals and study them. Where and how we live, how we age, the companion animals we prefer to acquire, and changes in how we study our relationship with animals, are some of the themes covered in this plenary talk as well as looking to what the future might hold for Human-Animal Interaction studies. And yes, COVID-19 changed things for our companion animals too
