Welcome to MMilani.com

Written by veterinarian, consultant, teacher, and author Myrna Milani, this site is dedicated to furthering our understanding of animal health, behavior, and the human-animal bond. In addition to commentaries, favorite links, and biographical information, you will find the following:
  • Information about available services, including problem dog and cat behavior consultations, behavior/bond consulting for organizations grappling with animal-related issues, and seminars and training for professionals and the general public.
  • Articles that explore normal and problem human-animal relationships, normal and problem canine and feline behavior, and the different ways these may affect animal health.
  • Discussions of and/or excerpts from nonfiction texts which introduce more in-depth explorations of these same subjects, and those from fiction which delve into more controversial areas of human-animal interaction, such as companion animal symbolism, zoophilia, and animal collecting or hoarding, among others.
