    Aggression is not a diagnosis ... it's a symptom of an underlying problem. In this Case-based Learning (CBL) segment, veterinary behavior expert - Dr. Christine Calder, DACVB - discusses "Gus" and shares his story to highlight keys to working through a behavior problem (in this example - aggression), and considerations regarding the work-up, constructing a list of differential diagnoses (e.g. fear-based, territorial, predatory behavior, play-related, pain-induced), and a five-pronged approach to treating the patient. Discussion includes when to consider implementing medications as part of the treatment plan as well as medication selection.
