Behavior problems in pets can cause people to give up their pets. Most pets are relinquished at a very young age, and once pets go to the shelter, the chances they will be euthanized are high. That’s why the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists (ACVB) has joined with Ceva Animal Health, makers of Feliway® and AdaptilTM pheromone products for the Keep the L.O.V.E. Alive Behavior Express Tour 2012. Pet owners need to know:

  1. Solving behavior problems can help prevent pet euthanasia.
  2. There are medically-sound options to modify and treat behavior problems before it’s too late.
  3. A visit to the veterinarian can determine the best behavior treatment plan for your pet.

ACVB board-certified veterinarians and local veterinarians will be on hand in several cities as part of this campaign at free pet fairs in San Diego, Chicago, New York City, Kansas City, Dallas, Atlanta and Los Angeles.
