BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Behavioural Medicine

Author: Debra Horwitz,Daniel S. Mills,Sarah Heath

Publisher: BSAVA

ISBN: N.A

Category: Medical

Page: 288

View: 7762

The classic BSAVA Manuals of Canine Behaviour and Feline Behaviour were ahead of their time in the appreciation of the importance of small animal behaviour and its problems and treatment. This completely new Manual builds on their success. Written primarily for the veterinary surgeon in general practice, by veterinarians working in the fields of behaviour in different countries, the BSAVA Manual of Clinical and Feline Behavioural Medicine offers both sound scientific information and practical easy-to-follow advice. The book will also appeal to those who already have a special interest in behaviour problems. Following a consideration of the place of behavioural medicine within the practice setting, 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. In the last 10-15 years the veterinary professional has increasingly appreciated the wider importance of animal behaviour and psychological well-being. Behavioural problems can disrupt the pet=owner relationship to the point of breaking, and many pets are re-homes, abandoned or euthanased as a result. Safeguarding the pet-owner relationship and assisting owners in gaining a deeper understanding of their companion animals is an integral part of modern veterinary practice. The BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Behavioural Medicine will enable you to cater for this need.

Many dog owners in the UK don't understand the dynamics of human/dog relationships and consequently experience problems with their pets, such as barking, aggression, chasing livestock, chewing, pulling and running away. Experienced dog trainer Debbie Connolly shows new and experienced dog owners alike how to deal with such behaviour problems, so that the dog can become a safe and happy member of their family. Debbie recounts real-life anecdotes to get across the serious point that you are playing with your dog's life, if you can't or won't learn to treat your dog appropriately.Some of the stories she tells are funny, some are sad, but all of them are easy for her readers to identify with and relate to. She explains how to get a dog from the right source and how to live with it afterwards.She gives practical advice on how to solve all the common problems dog owners face. And she isn't afraid to raise important issues that others avoid - issues that dog owners actually face in the real world, for example, when you should give up and put your dog to sleep.

Was unseren Umgang mit Hunden bestimmt

Author: Patricia B. McConnell

Publisher: Kynos Verlag

ISBN: 3942335557

Category: Pets

Page: 256

View: 8939

Dieses Buch wirft eine revolutionäre, neue Perspektive auf unseren Umgang mit Hunden: Es beleuchtet unser Verhalten im Vergleich zu dem der Hunde! Als Doktorin der Zoologie, Tierverhaltenstherapeutin und Hundetrainerin mit mehr als zwanzig Jahren Praxiserfahrung betrachtet Patricia McConnell uns Menschen augenzwinkernd wie eine interessante Spezies von Säugetieren. Fundiert, aber höchst unterhaltsam beschreibt sie, wie wir uns in Gegenwart von Hunden verhalten, wie die Hunde unser Verhalten interpretieren (oder missverstehen) könnten und wie wir am besten mit unseren vierbeinigen Freunden umgehen, um das Beste aus ihnen herauszuholen. Beginnen Sie, Hundeverhalten aus der Sicht eines Hundes zu betrachten und Sie werden verstehen, warum vieles, das wie Ungehorsam Ihres Hundes aussieht, einfach ein großes Missverständnis ist. Denn wir sind Primaten, die Hunde Caniden - und sprechen folglich andere Sprachen! Hier erfahren Sie: - Wie Ihr Hund eher auf Zuruf kommt, wenn Sie sich weniger wie ein Affe und mehr wie ein Hund benehmen - Warum der Rat, "Dominanz" über den Hund erlangen zu müssen, Sie in Schwierigkeiten bringen kann - Welche Persönlichkeitstypen Menschen und Hunden gemeinsam sind und warum die meisten Hunde lieber mit großzügigen Herrschern als mit "Möchtegern-Alphas" zusammenleben - ... und vieles mehr! Zahlreiche kleine Geschichten, Erlebnisse und amüsante Begebenheiten am Rande machen dieses Buch zu einer Fundgrube für Aha-Erlebnisse, bei denen höchstes Lesevergnügen garantiert ist. So viel Spaß kann Verhaltensforschung machen!
