I look forward to reading The Capsule Report. I try to keep up with my journals, and I definitely notice what a great job you do gleaning the nuggets of wisdom each month.

The Capsule Report

Informing veterinarians continuously for over 36 years.

The Capsule Report is based on a simple premise “that few veterinarians have the time to study all the lengthy articles in veterinary journals, news reports, and newsletters, nor does the busy clinician have the time to attend all the veterinary conferences that the Capsule covers. The Capsule Report selects the articles that are of practical significance to the veterinarian and separates the wheat from the chaff (i.e. the "good stuff" you want and care about), saving you time and money. The Capsule Report also gathers pertinent information from over 40 national, regional, and state meetings and conferences that can be of immediate use to the practitioner.

Behavior drugs and behavior modification

A behavior modification program is essential for the successful treatment of any behavior problem. Use of psychoactive agents as a sole treatment for an ongoing behavior issue is completely inappropriate and constitutes misuse of the medication. Medication alone rarely provides a cure. Further, medicating a patient without also managing the environment, teaching the owners how to remain safe and understand their pet’s problem, teaching coping skills to the pet, and addressing environmental issues, is irresponsible, unsafe, and unfair. If the use of medication leads to owner complacency and laxity of supervision, then the results can be tragic.
