Stress and Pheromonatherapy in Small Animal ClinicalBehaviour is about how stress impacts on animal behaviour andwelfare and what we can do about it, especially by using chemicalsignals more effectively. This readily accessible text starts fromfirst principles and is useful to both academics and practitionersalike.

The authors have pioneered the use of pheromone therapy withinthe field of clinical animal behaviour. As the culmination ofmany years of research and experience, they offer soundevidence-based advice on how and when pheromones can be used mosteffectively.

The first part of the book deals with some fundamental concepts,focusing on the key concepts of stress, communication andperception.
