The good news is when you are familiar with a variety of options and have a system to evaluate the success or side effects, taking the next steps can be easier than you think.

At Behavior Vets, we believe improvements come faster in an educated team, so in this Two-Part series, we will cover what to do if a medication plan isn’t working, how to change medications, and when to take a medication vacation.

Pet Owners - Have you started a medication with your pet, but just aren’t seeing results? Are you worried you’re seeing side effects? Are you wondering how to approach your veterinarian about making a change? This webinar will help prepare you to be a better advocate for your pet and get better results.

Trainers/Behavior Consultants - Do you have cases where the training plan is harder since starting medications? Are you curious about how to support your client through the trials and tribulations of the medication journey? Join us for a look at the mechanisms of action and clinical uses for these medications so you know how they might impact your behavior plans.

Veterinarians - Are you wanting to add medications to your toolbox, but just haven’t been able to figure out how to add new medications to your plan?  Looking for some support on when to choose something new? Come to this webinar to learn about case selection and protocols for medications you’ve never tried before.
We’ll discuss the research, the potential uses, and the challenges of using these types of medications for behavior cases.
