Deep Dive: The Pain Behavior Assessment - Moose's Story

Director of Canine Arthritis Management and veterinarian Dr. Hannah Capon, Neuroscientist and veterinarian Dr. Kathy Murphy, and Certified Dog Behavior Consultant Bobbie Bhambree work together through different aspects of case work up and management. As well as looking at the individual case, generic topics such as breed predisposition for early life pain, pain psychophysiology and the neurobiological link between anxiety and pain will be discussed. We will explore how we helped Moose feel better with the right pain management treatment along with behavior modification to reduce anxiety. The focus will be on leaving you armed with practical tips on how to implement the knowledge we share.

Pain is an important potential factor for cases which present with behavior problems. In this seminar we will focus on providing you with a structured, evidenced-based approach for an initial case assessment, while also taking you through the details of a real case. We will discuss pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods used to treat Moose, a 5 year old Bernese Mountain Dog presenting for anxiety, who also has a history of hip and elbow dysplasia.
