Unusual Suspects: Unconventional Drug Therapies for Behavioral Issues

There are over 50 medications available to treat behavior problems in animals, yet most people have only worked with a handful. If you haven’t worked with a veterinary behavior team, you may not even know these options exist. The good news is the right medication plan can change the game, and learning more about the alternatives (and diving in) can improve success. Of course, figuring out the best treatment for each patient is complex. Medical problems, training plans, and even family vacation plans can impact medication choice.
