Explanation of Credentials

DVM or VMD (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine or Veterinary Medical Doctor) Veterinarians are qualified to diagnose and treat medical and behavioral problems in animals. They are the only professionals who can prescribe medications to treat such problems. Some veterinarians have a special interest in behavior and limit their practices to behavior medicine.

DACVB (Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists) These veterinarians are board-certified specialists with extensive post-graduate training in animal behavior. DACVBs are qualified to diagnose and treat medical problems in animals, including prescribing medications and behavior modification plans to treat these conditions.

PhD (Individuals who have completed a PhD degree in animal behavior or a related field) This degree is research and theory related, and requires contributions to the animal behavior literature. These consultants cannot prescribe medications but often work closely with a veterinarian who can.

CAAB (Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist) These individuals have completed a graduate degree in animal behavior or a related field and have research experience as well as clinical experience working with animals. CAABs are qualified to evaluate and manage behavioral problems in animals, but cannot prescribe medications. They typically work closely with a veterinarian who can.

Note: In order for a veterinarian to prescribe medication, a valid doctor-patient relationship with the animal is required. This requires a current examination (within the past year) of the patient, and direct involvement in the treatment plan. This evaluation should include the report and suggestions from other professionals who have evaluated the pet (CAABs, PhDs, trainers, or other veterinarians).
