Summary

This popular quick reference is back with the latest updated information available. True to earlier adoptions, Houpt maintains organization by common types of behavior and addresses advances in communication, perception, cognition and clinical behavior. Key to the fourth edition is advancements in the use of psychotropic drugs and the role of underlying disease in some behavior problems. Also new to this edition are discussions of progress and research in understanding equine and production animal behavior, and the relationship between behavior and animal welfare.

The text provides:

  • Physiological basis and development for each type of behavior;
  • Normal and aberrant manifestations in each domestic animal species, including horses and farm animals;
  • Treatments for problem situations;
  • Consideration of the effects of domestication on each species.

This text is intended for animal science and veterinary students and includes a glossary of medical terms, illustrations of anatomy and behavior, and over 1500 classical and contemporary references.
