Penn Vet Behavior App is Your Link to World-Renown Canine Behavior Specialists.
In partnership with University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine (Penn Vet), Connect For Education, Inc. is thrilled to announce a groundbreaking pilot program for our online telemedicine portal, training and education resource we call Penn Vet Behavior App. Veterinarians accepted into the pilot will have free access to the program for a six-month period, during which they will be able to consult with Penn Vet behavioral specialists. The goal of this pilot is to gather feedback on the user interface and experience. A widespread rollout to dog owners and veterinarians nationally is planned for late 2018.
Veterinary medicine for the modern world
This innovative resource will provide veterinarians from all over the U.S. access to world-renown canine behavior specialists at Penn Vet. The portal integrates video, communication, and file sharing tools allowing all stakeholders precise feedback to specific issues. When necessary, veterinarians can consult with specialists at Penn Vet for a detailed patient assessment. Dog owners have access to C-BARQ (Canine Behavioral Assessment and Research Questionnaire) – a robust, widely-used mechanism to assess their dog’s behavior traits – and to an expanding library of resources created and curated by Penn Vet.
“C4E has done an amazing job bringing this idea to life” stated James Serpell (BSc, PhD), Director of the Center for the Interaction of Animals and Society at Penn Vet. “As a top specialty hospital, we’re often consulted as a last resort. That can be needlessly frustrating for the dog, the owner, and the vet. This application removes those barriers, and we hope will empower vets and dog owners to more quickly find the answers they need.”
“Penn Vet is ranked as one of the best veterinary programs in the world, so we are thrilled to be partnering with them.” says Dongsook Whitehead, President of C4E. “As a dog-lover and owner, I know how frustrating it can be when your pet is exhibiting behavioral issues, but your vet isn’t equipped to diagnose and treat them. This application means every vet can have access to the best minds in behavioral veterinary medicine.”
