In this episode, host Beckie Mossor, RVT, talks to Karen Lynn C. Sueda, DVM, DACVB, about her recent Clinician’s Brief article, “Canine Compulsive Disorder.” Dr. Sueda gives a clear definition of what classifies as a compulsive behavior, then details how to diagnose it in your patients. She provides examples of compulsive behaviors in many species, from dogs and cats to birds and polar bears. Dr. Sueda also offers tips to embrace a team approach to these cases and optimize CSRs and client involvement; after all, “it takes a village to treat these behavior problems.”
