The manual has been written with the veterinary surgeon in general practice in mind and it aims to offer both sound scientific information and practical easy-to-follow advice. Following a consideration of the role of behavioural medicine within the veterinary practice, the normal behaviours of cats and dogs are described. Some more theoretical chapters are included, to give a background understanding of learning theory, the physiology of fear, and types of aggression. But the major focus of the Manual is on the practical approach to history taking, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis, and follow-up of the range of behavioural problems encountered in dogs and cats. Colour photographs and specially commissioned drawings illustrate important features such as body postures, and tables throughout help the reader to access important information quickly.
