GUELPH, Ontario, July 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeLearn Inc. has just released Behavior Advice for Clients, an updated compilation of the LifeLearn set of behavior client handouts, which are part of ClientEd Online™, LifeLearn's online client education service. These reprintable, illustrated handouts provide veterinary healthcare teams and pet owners with practical advice on the prevention, management, and treatment of behavior problems in dogs and cats.

Presented in a way that helps owners understand basic concepts of learning, training, and normal behavior in their pets, Behavior Advice for Clients also provides answers and solutions to the most common behavior problems in dogs and cats. Accompanying the book is a CD with all articles in PDF form to facilitate printing of individual handouts for clients.
Compiled by board-certified veterinary behaviorists Dr. Gary Landsberg and Dr. Debra Horwitz, who also wrote many of the handouts, this 416-page book and CD are aimed at helping veterinary practices develop, enhance, or expand their behavior consultation services. The authors have added and updated content and have organized the book into five general sections—behavior modification and techniques, cat behavioral issues, dog behavioral issues, kitten basics, and puppy basics—to facilitate ease of use.
"Behavior is an integral part of wellness and often an early sign of disease in pets," said Dr. Horwitz. "When behavior problems arise, they can break the human–animal bond and, all too frequently, result in pet relinquishment. Dr. Landsberg and I have dedicated most of our careers to helping veterinarians and pet owners understand pet behavior and educate both groups on how to improve and resolve unwanted behaviors in their pets. We hope that Behavior Advice for Clients will allow veterinary practice teams to expand their use of the ClientEd Online handouts and help many more owners and their pets."
Veterinary practices can utilize this new resource for continuing education, quick reference, treatment planning, and client education. To order Behavior Advice for Clients, call 800-375-7994 or visit LifeLearn's web site.
