Handbook of Behavior Problems of the Dog and CatVeterinary Medicine - Small Animals

This best-selling, practical book on behavior therapy offers easily-accessible information in a user-friendly approach. With this essential handbook, veterinarians don't need to be behavior specialists to provide optimum care for clients with behavior problems. The 2nd edition provides at-a-glance solutions to common behavior problems, offering updated information on preventive and basic counseling advice, as well as new material on the link between genetics and behavior. All treatment protocols have been drawn from and text and compiled into a convenient appendix in the back of the book. Staff responsibilities and the team approach to behavior counseling are also discussed.

REVIEWS OF PREVIOUS EDITION: "…The text is clearly written and is full of useful tables and case studies which help the reader to absorb the information conveyed in the text. A useful appendix lists all the drugs mentioned, and their uses and dosages." Veterinary Record, July 19, 1997 "The Handbook of Behaviour Problems of the Dog and Cat …can help you incorporate behaviour services in your practice." Veterinary Economics, November 1997. "Following the three chapters on counselling, chapter 4 is devoted to drugs used in behavioural therapy and comprises some 14 pages. This, together with the appendix, I found invaluable. After reading the book I began to use many more drugs for behavioural modification… This book will be of value for both the novice behavioural practitioner and also those with more experience wanting further insight into specific presented problems." Trevor Turner, Veterinary Times, January 1998 "Recent estimates indicate that veterinarians now spend about 20% of their time dealing with behaviour problems… This handbook is easy to read. It is set out clearly and the chapters cover the common behaviour problems seen in general companion animal practice. The book gives common-sense advice. …..the book will be a valuable resource for small animal veterinary practices to include in the behaviour section of the library." K Seksel, Australian Veterinary Journal, December 1997
