What is a Veterinary Psychiatrist?

There can be major differences in the background, training and expertise of those providing behavioural advice.  The veterinary psychiatrist/behaviourist must first be a graduate of an accredited veterinary college.  A veterinary degree ensures a comprehensive background in anatomy, neurology, physiology, medicine, and pharmacology, as well as the type of medical problems that might affect the behaviour of the pet.  The veterinary psychiatrist must also receive training in normal species-typical behaviour, comparative animal behaviour, the principles of learning and behaviour modification, abnormal behaviour, psychopharmacology and the effects of disease on behaviour, and must work for at least three years seeing cases under the mentorship of a board-certified behaviourist.  Publications, presentations to other veterinarians, case histories and a four-part examination are all then required to achieve board certification (see www.dacvb.org and www.ecawbm.com for details).  In short, the veterinary psychiatrist has a unique combination of education and training, clinical expertise and medical knowledge to be able to diagnose and design a treatment program for your pet’s behaviour problem.
