FEATURED SPEAKER: DR. LORE HAUG

Dr. Lore I. Haug, DVM, MS, DACVB, CABC is a Board certified veterinary behaviorist and IAABC certified animal behavior consultant from Texas. She grew up surrounded by animals and graduated summa cum laude from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1993, returning in 2002 to complete her behavior residency and Master’s degree before going on to head up the college’s Animal Behavior Service for five years. She now lives in Houston and runs a behavior referral practice.

When asked what inspired her to choose behavior as a specialty, Dr. Haug said, “The brain is one of our last true frontiers. It is astonishing how much science has learned about the brain and the way it works. Despite this, we still have such a poor grasp on why humans and animals behave the way they do. The more questions that science answers, the more questions there are to answer. Behavioral medicine allows me to be a neurologist and internist as well. It also allows me to help people try to achieve the indescribably life-altering bond with their animals that I have had with mine.”

Dr. Haug will be giving a talk called “Stereotypies in Horses” at IAABC 2017, on Saturday, April 8th from 3pm – 4pm.
