About this Webinar Series
When patients get to Behavior Vets, we want to get help on board fast. But sometimes the right help takes time. Maintenance medications are the long-game. They can be the difference between a quick fix and lasting behavior change.
Unfortunately, if you aren't working with a veterinary behavior team, the nuts and bolts of how they are used can be a mystery. This can be stressful when you are investing weeks of energy and work.
We believe animals and families get better faster when they have an educated team, so in this 2 part webinar series, we will cover four of the most popular maintenance medications for dogs and cats:
- Fluoxetine (AKA Reconcile, Prozac)
- Sertraline (AKA Zoloft)
- Clomipramine (AKA Clomicalm, Anafranil)
- Paroxetine (AKA Paxil)
Are you supporting an anxious or fearful pet? Are you interested in learning more about the options before you talk to your veterinarian? This webinar will help prepare you to be a better advocate and get better results.
Have you wondered why fluoxetine is prescribed so often? Are you curious about why you don't see sertraline used more often or why the dose range is different from vet to vet? Join us for a deeper look into the mechanisms of action and common clinical uses for these medications.
This webinar will refine the way you use maintenance medications. If you've never used them, let's help you get more comfortable with these amazing options.
