Behavioral problems such as aggression, elimination disorders, separation anxiety, and noise phobia affect dogs and cats more than any other condition—yet these issues are among the most widely misunderstood by pet owners and practitioners alike.

Fortunately, AAHA’s behavior management guidelines and pet behavior brochures can help.

The 2015 AAHA Canine and Feline Behavior Management Guidelines provide up-to-date, evidence-based information to help veterinary professionals better understand how to treat and manage behavioral issues that often lead to relinquishment or euthanasia, and ensure the basic behavioral needs of their patients are being met.

Recognizing the key role pet owners play in managing behavior, the guidelines also focus on helping practitioners educate clients about their pets’ behavioral needs—a vital step toward increasing compliance and establishing veterinary professionals as clients’ primary source of information.

Do your clients have access to the reliable behavior resources they need? All-new editions of AAHA’s pet behavior brochures discuss the most common problems clients face and are now compliant with the 2015 AAHA Canine and Feline Behavior Management Guidelines.
