  • Fears and phobias affect a dog's quality of life and welfare
    while posing a serious concern for family members.
  • Therapeutic options should include both environmental management to minimize or mute exposure to the stimuli and behavior modification
    using desensitization and counterconditioning.
  • Behavioral techniques should be complemented with drugs or natural products to reduce the pet's anxiety and improve the outcome of behavioral modification.
