The American College of Veterinary Behaviorists (ACVB) is the certifying board for veterinarians who are specialty trained to advance the behavioral health of animals through clinical practice, research, and science-based behavior education. Board-certified specialists are known as Diplomates.
Veterinary behaviorists are trained to address the relationships between an animal’s health, environment, experiences and its behavior. They have extensive knowledge of psychotropic medications, their uses, potential side effects and interactions with other medications, and are licensed to prescribe them when indicated.
The measures necessary to reduce the impact of COVID-19 may affect your pet too. During these times, we understand that you and your pet may be dealing with stressors. There is help available. Please contact the closest ACVB diplomate and your veterinarian to see how we can help.
The Veterinary Behavior Symposium (VBS) is intended to provide a forum for sharing cutting-edge, original research in the field of animal behavior. This year, the Symposium will be held virtually online. Find out more here.
