The use of pharmacologic agents to treat feline behavioral disorders has become Ii widely accepted practice in modern veterinary medicine. It is the responsibility of the veterinarian to be aware of the appropriate uses, mechanisms of action, and side effects of these agents. Pharmacological therapy needs to be part of an integrated program which considers the physical, behavioral, and social environments of the pet. Client compliance is critical as therapy is more often successful when combined with environmental changes.
