BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Behavioural Medicine

Publisher: BSAVA

The classic BSAVA Manuals of Canine Behaviour and Feline Behaviour were ahead of their time in the appreciation of the importance of small animal behaviour and its problems and treatment. This completely new Manual builds on their success. Written primarily for the veterinary surgeon in general practice, by veterinarians working in the fields of behaviour in different countries, the BSAVA Manual of Clinical and Feline Behavioural Medicine offers both sound scientific information and practical easy-to-follow advice. The book will also appeal to those who already have a special interest in behaviour problems. Following a consideration of the place of behavioural medicine within the practice setting, the normal behaviours of cats and dogs are described. Some more theoretical chapters are included, to give a background understanding of learning theory, the physiology of fear, and types of aggression. But the major focus of the Manual is on the practical approach to history taking, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis, and follow-up of the range of behavioural problems encountered in dogs and cats. Colour photographs and specially commissioned drawings illustrate important features such as body postures, and tables throughout help the reader to access important information quickly. In the last 10-15 years the veterinary professional has increasingly appreciated the wider importance of animal behaviour and psychological well-being. Behavioural problems can disrupt the pet=owner relationship to the point of breaking, and many pets are re-homes, abandoned or euthanased as a result. Safeguarding the pet-owner relationship and assisting owners in gaining a deeper understanding of their companion animals is an integral part of modern veterinary practice. The BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Behavioural Medicine will enable you to cater for this need.

Every day veterinarians in practice are asked to treat pets exhibiting problem behaviors. In the last several years pharmacologic treatments of behavior have made significant advances and can serve as a critical part of therapy. Veterinary Pscyhopharmacology is a complete source of current knowledge on the subject of pharmacologic behavior modification that veterinarians can turn to for the answers they need. Classification of disorders is eschewed in favor of in-depth explanations of pharmacologic options in inducing behavior changes. Special emphasis is given to explaining the underlying mechanism of pharmacologic agents used in therapy; thus, veterinarians will know not only which drugs to prescribe but why they should be prescribed and how they work. Veterinary behaviorists, their students and residents, veterinary practitioners of all levels, and veterinary students will find this book invaluable in providing information about their patients' behavior problems and the psychoactive medications that might help them.

Stereotypic Animal Behaviour

Fundamentals and Applications to Welfare
Author: Georgia Mason,Jeffrey Rushen
Publisher: CABI
ISBN: 1845934652
Category: Medical
Page: 367
View: 6067
Abnormal behaviour patterns, from the jumping and somersaulting of caged laboratory mice to the pacing of enclosed 'big cats', are displayed by many millions of farm, zoo, research and companion animals. Including new chapters and over 30 contributors, this book focuses on the causation and treatment of these environment-induced stereotypic behaviours, and their implications for animal welfare and normalcy of brain functioning. The book begins by taking an ethological perspective, focusing on the constraints captivity places on animals' normal behavioural repertoires, and the effects these have on specific motivational systems. It then addresses the role of dysfunction, particularly the impact of chronic stress and impoverished environments on brain functioning. The book then moves on to explore how stereotypic behaviours can be tackled, once they have emerged, using diverse techniques from environmental enrichment to pharmaceutical intervention. It concludes by giving a new definition for 'stereotypic behaviour', and a discussion of future research directions.

The book is divided into four sections. The first section covers the relevant principles of normal canine behaviour and communication, how normal and problem behaviour develops, how it can be changed and the human-canine bond. Understanding of these principles will help inform the later sections of the book, although are not essential for the time-strapped practitioner. The second section aims to highlight how advanced understanding of canine behaviour and communication can be used to improve handling and interaction with dogs in practice. The third section aims to summarize how the VN/VT can help prevent problem behaviour arising by offering appropriate advice and service to clients. The last section aims to guide VN/VTs how best to respond to clients presenting dogs with established problem behaviours. Guidance is given for those problems that can be addressed in the practice and flow charts are provided to guide when it is appropriate to refer to a specialist. This section also explains how to choose whom to refer to.
