There are many pets who have trouble coping with certain situations or the world around them. These pets may be extremely anxious, act in an aggressive manner or develop compulsive behaviors. It is essential to evaluate the emotional contributions to behaviors in order to make a treatment plan that allows the pet to cope with life’s stressors. Have you ever wondered what a veterinary behaviorist does or why a pet would need to consult with one? Veterinary Behaviorists are licensed veterinarians that have achieved board-certification in the specialty of Veterinary Behavior. Pets of all types and ages may need help and we want you to know when to get them additional behavior assistance. This presentation will be beneficial for veterinarians, trainers and many other pet professionals who work with a variety of animals. Pet guardians may also find this information useful while pursuing help for pets displaying behavioral and emotional issues. Topics covered will include: What is a veterinary behaviorist? What specialized training have they received? What can a veterinary behaviorist offer to clients that is different from a family practice vet? What types of behaviors and symptoms indicate that an animal should be referred to a veterinary behaviorist? How does a veterinary behaviorist work with veterinarians and trainers/behavior consultants? What are examples of medical issues affecting behavior? How do you find a veterinary behaviorist in your area? What can you do when a client doesn’t have a veterinary behaviorist in their area or can’t afford these specialized services? Time will be available for questions at the end of the webinar. https://richmondspca.org/classes/webinar-what-is-a-veterinary-behaviorist-saturday-7-18-at-400-p-m/
