Differentiating Fear from a Phobia. Case-based Learning in Behavior: Noise-related Anxiety versus Noise Phobia

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    In this VetVine Case-based Learning (CBL) segment, veterinary behavior expert - Dr. Christine Calder - discusses Shai (a service dog) and shares his story to highlight keys to working through a behavior problem (in this example - reactivity to noises), as well as considerations for differentiating anxiety-related behavior from a true phobia.

    Discussion includes physical aids that were helpful in managing this dog's aversion to noise, demonstration of a desensitization and counterconditioning technique that was employed in his management, as well as pharmacologic interventions that were considered and administered.
