Canine and Feline Behavior 2nd Edition PDF has adopted a new approach, grouping chapters by disorder category, which should make it easier for the reader to reach the correct diagnosis. However, the outline of each chapter is the same as in the first edition, so that the reader can feel confident that all the information they need to diagnose and treat a behavioral disorder is right in front of them.
Canine and Feline Behavior 2nd Edition PDF By Debra F. HorwitzAs veterinary healthcare professionals, whenever there is a change in behavior it is always essential to do our medical due diligence before moving on to a behavioral diagnosis, realizing that both can occur together, and that is how we begin with Chapter 1.
Aggression is a serious behavioral illness with numerous underlying motivations, and is dangerous both to humans and to other animals. The chapters on aggression are now grouped by species, with canine aggression being covered in Chapters 2–13, and feline aggression in Chapters 14–22.
Underlying most unwanted and undesirable behaviors in dogs and cats are anxiety, fear, and phobic disorders (Chapters 23–33). All of these types of illness are grouped together to facilitate diagnosis and treatment, since often more than one anxiety disorder may be present in a particular patient.
Next follows a section on compulsive and repetitive behaviors (Chapters 34–42), to help the reader to make the correct diagnosis and set up an appropriate treatment plan. These behavioral illnesses are usually abnormal, may occur in conjunction with medical disorders, and can have a negative impact on the animal’s quality of life, welfare, and even their home.
The integration of pets into the home is often complex, as many homes have multiple pets of either the same or different species, or are combining families with pets. The aim of Chapters 8, 9, 16, 43, and 44 is to assist people in resolving the issues that may arise, and in addition several handouts are provided to help to facilitate a more harmonious integration. The key to creating harmony at home is enrichment, and Chapters 45 and 46 address this topic for dogs and cats, respectively.
