Welcome everyone to another episode of the Animal Academy Podcast. The focus of this podcast has been on the many ways that animals make our lives whole and how they add many benefits to our quality of life. But, what if our beloved pet has challenges and we find ourselves faced with difficult choices and decisions regarding their care, which may also impact our own quality of life.
I’m excited to have a discussion with Kristin Buller, licensed clinical social worker with certification in Veterinary Social Work and Dr. Kelly Balantyne, a board certified veterinary behaviorist, who will discuss their research project called “Living With and Loving A Pet With Behavioral Problems: Pet Owners’ Experiences.”
