Abstract:  At best, a behavior disorder in a companion animal is a minor inconvenience for the owner. At worst, such problems lead to the surrender or euthanasia of a once-loved pet. Today, however, veterinary pharmacology offers new, safe, and effective therapies for the treatment of anxiety, aggression, and fear in dogs, cats, birds, and exotic pets. Used in addition to behavior modification and changes in the pet’s environment, those medications increase the likelihood of therapeutic success.
