In this VetVine Case-based Learning (CBL) segment, veterinary behavior expert Dr. Christine Calder discusses the case of "Shai" (a service dog) and shares his story to highlight keys to working through a behavior problem (in this example - reactivity to noises), as well as considerations for differentiating anxiety-related behavior from a true phobia. Discussion includes physical aids that were helpful in managing this dog's aversion to noise, demonstration of a desensitization and counterconditioning technique that was employed in his management, as well as pharmacologic interventions that were considered and administered.
