Rachel Malamed, DVM, DACVB, board-certified veterinary behaviorist, today announced the launch of a new website designed to provide pet owners with information and services key to solving difficult behavioral problems in pets. Issues like aggression, inappropriate elimination, and excessive barking often result in the heartbreaking separation of pet and owner, and even the relinquishment, abandonment, or euthanasia of the animal. Solving these problems is critical to keeping families together with their beloved pets.
"Commonly," Dr. Malamed says, "people become so frustrated with the behavioral issue that they may relinquish their dogs or cats if the problem is not tolerable. These animals are usually put down if they are not adopted, or they may continue to endure compromised welfare in their new homes."
