6th Annual Gulf-Atlantic Veterinary Conference
Veterinarians are frequently faced with questions about aggressive behaviors that may include biting, scratching, lunging or threatening postures. As with other behavioral questions, it is rare for there to be a single “right” answer to a question or a “one-size-fits-all” solution to the problem that is occurring. This presentation will discuss risk factors that affect the likelihood of achieving a safe and successful outcome for these patients. Strategies for approaching topics such as rehoming or humane euthanasia will also be covered.
