Behaviour Problems

Student Articles

These short articles discuss the etiology and treatment of behavioural problems in domestic and captive animals. The papers were written by Veterinary students at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Sakatchewan. The papers were voluntarily submitted as part of a class assignment and represent a brief summary of the material and information known about these topics. By posting these papers on the web, students provide their fellow classmates (and you) with an opportunity to read material they felt was interesting and useful to the public and veterinarians. Students included a brief list of the references they have used in researching these topics. Anyone seeking additional information on these topics should consult the references cited at the end of each article. As editors of this page we caution you that the information in these articles is limited by the thoroughness of the individual student who wrote the article and was not written by an expert in this field. However, we believe the articles represent a good starting point for the novice trying to better understand a particular behavioural problem.

We intend to add additional information to these topics in the future and hope to include pictures and short video clips to enhance your understanding of these behavioural problems. If you are an expert in this area or have more recent information, pictures or video clips of these specific behaviours we welcome your contributions and suggestions.
