- Concise but comprehensive coverage of all the fundamentals of animal behaviour in companion, farm and laboratory animals.
- Expert authors and key opinion leaders from around the world provide the latest evidence-based information on animal behaviour and welfare.
- A revised layout and design, means it is easy to find key information at a glance, making it an ideal rapid revision tool.
- New for the third edition: new chapters on fur animals with the inclusion of more species and expanded sections on canine behaviour.

This text remains a highly respected, essential resource for both students and lecturers in animal and veterinary science, animal welfare, zoology and psychology.
