Feline aggression toward family members: a guide for practitioners

, : Feline aggression toward family members: a guide for practitioners. Veterinary Clinics of North America. Small Animal Practice 44(3): 581-597

Feline aggression toward people is a common and potentially dangerous problem. Proper diagnosis of the underlying cause of the aggression is key in effective treatment. A complete history, including information on the people in the home, other pets, and specific incidents, is necessary to make this diagnosis. A comprehensive treatment plan typically includes management, enhancement of the cat's living environment, techniques for replacing the aggressive behavior with more appropriate behaviors, and, potentially, medication. The treatment plan must reflect the abilities and commitment of the owner.

The effect is completely inhibited in the presence of...
