Event Details



Presenter Bio: Jessica Hekman, DVM, PhD, is a veterinary genetics researcher who is fascinated by dog behavior. She works at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard as a postdoctoral associate, studying the genetics of behavior in pet dogs through the Darwin’s Ark project and the Working Dogs Project. She also teaches online and consults with breeders about genetic testing and breeding choices. Recently, she founded the Functional Dog Collaborative (functionalbreeding.org) to provide support to ethical breeders of healthy and behaviorally solid dogs. Jessica lives in Raymond, NH with her husband and three dogs. You can follow her on Facebook at facebook.com/dogzombieblog.

Presentation Detail: Probiotics are starting to be recommended by veterinarians to help manage behavioral issues in dogs, either as support in addition to behavioral medication or just on their own. Are they actually effective? How could adding bacteria to the GI system affect the brain? How long term must they be given? What changes might you expect, and what diagnoses are they helpful for? Are there side effects? What’s the best brand to buy, or can you make your own? Join Jessica Hekman, DVM, PhD, a research scientist who specializes in the biology of behavior, for a deep dive into the crazy new findings coming out about probiotics and behavior in dogs.

Public webinars and live events will be recorded and a link sent to all registrants.
