What to do when presented with a case of canine aggression and why?
There are numerous myths surrounding canine aggression. Many veterinarians do not feel confident providing advice to owners about an aggressive dog. Without appropriate advice, owners may seek help from the internet or other sources that may be unreliable or not evidence based. As a result, animal welfare can be severely compromised, and human and animal safety can be at risk.
In this course, you will learn why dogs exhibit aggression, both in the veterinary clinic and in other situations, so that you can provide immediate advice as well as develop a long-term management program.
Medication will be discussed briefly during this course. However, this course is not designed to give specific medication advice for particular cases. If unsure regarding medication selection for a patient, the veterinary practitioner should refer to textbooks or refer to a specialist.
After successful completion of this course, you will:
1. Why canine aggression occurs
2. Diagnosing & managing aggression in dogs
