FANCY JOINING OUR TEAM?
Clinical Animal Behaviourist/ Veterinary Behaviourist
Canine behaviour knowledge and practice is central to rehabilitating pets with behavioural issues at The London Vet Behaviour Clinic. Science led behaviour knowledge also informs a range of behavioural modifications alongside training experience.
The role of the clinical animal behaviourist (CAB) is to advise owners, carers and professionals when animals have developed undesirable behaviours. Behavioural problems include such things as aggression towards people or other animals, destructiveness, toileting problems, vocal behaviour, fears and phobias.
The role of a veterinary behaviourist is similar to a CAB, but also includes: assessing animals for any underlying medical issues, conducting a clinical exam, discussing about appropriate medication, supporting vet teams with understandings of behavioural medication.
