There is a growing awareness of behavioural problems that occur in companion animals. As owners expect ever more from their veterinarians, correction of behavioural problems is one factor that can increase the success of practice.

The approach to behavioural problems reflects that taken to medical disorders: history-taking and evaluation; physical examination; differential diagnosis; diagnostic tests; treatment and monitoring. Detailed descriptions of behavioural modification techniques are given, as well as information on drug therapy. Case examples illustrate each problem. The role of the veterinary practice in providing information on puppy selection and early training is also emphasised. Reading this book will help veterinarians to incorporate behavioural consultations and counselling into their practices.About the Author:
