Board-certified veterinary behaviourists are veterinarians that have taken additional training in behavioural medicine. They are the gold standard for addressing serious behavioural issues, and they are well versed on behavioural modification techniques as well as the prescription of behaviour modifying drugs. In many cases, a veterinary behaviourist can help create a comprehensive plan, which can then be implemented on your own, or ideally with ongoing help from a qualified trainer.
