Developed in partnership with Intellivets, Connect for Education (C4E), and Penn Vet's Center for the Interaction of Animals and Society (CIAS)
, the Penn Vet Behavior App is a consultation and education service that connects pet owners and primary care veterinarians to reliable, scientifically-sound behavior expertise from the comfort of their home or clinic.
Using this web app, pet owners can obtain detailed assessments of their pets’ behavior via the C-BARQ (Canine Behavioral Assessment and Research Questionnaire), as well as access to helpful educational resources on canine behavior. When appropriate, they can also initiate a behavioral consultation between their veterinarian and the Penn Vet Behavior Service.
Veterinary general practitioners can use this service to obtain clinical consultations with Penn Vet Behaviorists about their patients’ behavior problems. Vets can do this by inviting their clients to sign up in this app.
The application also houses a resource library for both owners and veterinarians, curated by Penn Vet, that is available to all users regardless of whether or not they’re utilizing the consultation function of the app.
For more information about the specific benefits of the platform and the process to enroll, please take a look at the instructions for pet owners and veterinariansk (see below):
