Reading List for Veterinarians

The “Help I need to learn more about clinical veterinary behavior” reading list!

This is a list of basic, clinical veterinary behavior texts that we recommend for general practitioners looking to learn more about the fundamentals of diagnosing and treating behavioral problems, as well as when to refer a behavior case.

For those of you looking to further expand your knowledge of veterinary behavior please review the most up-to-date reading list in the Applicant Packet located on this page of our website. We also recommend attending behavior CE sessions, such as the annual Veterinary Behavior Symposium, held in conjunction with the AVMA convention.
