A comprehensive resource to understand the behavioral considerations for intake, management, and rehoming of dogs and cats
Animal Behavior for Shelter Veterinarians and Staff provides readers with comprehensive information addressing the behavior of both animals and humans associated with the intake, management, and rehoming of dogs and cats. To aid in practical application, the book covers specific behavior considerations in both dogs and cats. Topics are separated by animal to allow for easy accessibility by professionals who are actively working in the field.
Sample topics covered within the book include:
  • The behavior issues that are a common cause of pet relinquishment
  • Behavioral assessment, behavior modification, the integration of behavioral well-being into sheltering
  • Welfare assessment, psychopharmacology, safety net programs, and caring for animals during long-term legal holds
  • Equine care and caring for small mammals
Animal Behavior for Shelter Veterinarians and Staff is a must-have reference for evidence-based practical tips, techniques, and protocols for everyday use in animal shelters by shelter volunteers and staff, as well as professional trainers, behaviorists, and veterinarians working with shelters.
