There are many common animal behavior problems, including aggression, anxiety, compulsive disorders, species-typical behaviors, and nuisance behaviors. Treatment typically involves a combination of behavior modification for pets and management changes for owners.
In some cases, using behavior modification as well as drug therapy is required to resolve the problem. If medication is determined necessary, it is most often used in conjunction with behavior modification and seldom used alone.
Stephanie Borns-Weil, DVM, will lead this seminar and address some of these issues and modifications. Dr. Borns-Weil earned her doctorate in veterinary medicine at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts. Prior to joining the Tufts Behavior Service, Dr. Borns-Weil owned a behavior house call practice in the Boston area. She has had a lifelong interest in companion animal behavior, with a special interest in aggression issues. 6 Hours of Continuing Veterinary Medical Education Credit will be earned.
