EJCAP Special issue 2014: Calm pets, happy vets
How can you turn a snarling, snappy dog in your consultation into a well-behaved patient? Changing the mindset of dogs and counterconditioning are the key words in Sophia Yin*’s paper on Reducing stress and fear aggression in the clinic.
Read the tips of the trade in the 2014 Special issue on animal behaviour of EJCAP, the official journal of FECAVA.
The interactive CPD journal contains the usual wealth of (e.g. how do adult dogs get pups to behave?), quizzes (test your knowledge on treatment against separation anxiety), downloads (handouts for clients on how they can get their pet to enjoy car rides), soundbites (can you tell a meow from a yowl?) and tips (managing dogs with noise phobia).
Guest Editor for this Special issue on behaviour is Milos Urban (Czech republic), who highlights the importance of behavioural medicine in everyday practice in the editorial video.
