Veterinarians & Animal Behavior Clinic of New Jersey

You Are the Health Heroes for Pets!

We wanted a place on this website to let you know about  opportunities available to you from the ABC of NJ. We also wanted to make sure you had direct access to Dr. Levine’s email so you can directly contact her with any ideas you would like to see as possible , labs, programs for your clients or your staff …You all are on the front lines of health care so you all know best what the day to day issues with which you or your clients are struggling.  We very much believe in a team approach.

If you are a veterinarian and you need to contact Dr. Levine, email her at, and direct line coming in January. Feel free to ask your question via email or text or simply reach out saying you would like to set up a time to speak.  Our wish is to make sure we have clear lines of communication without having to play phone tag!

Behavior Lectures For Your Staff: On-Site or Via Webinar

We offer some staff education on topics that you will commonly come across with clients. We are able to do these staff education talks on location at the ABC of NJ or via webinar. If you are interested in setting one up for your staff, please contact us.

Note – we get ideas from you, health heroes, so please let us know if you have any other suggestions that you feel would be beneficial for your staff/clients. This will allow us to rotate menu options.

Pick a topic!

  1. Puppy Do’s and Don’ts: What advice to give your clients about common puppy problems.
  2. Its Mine! Frustration-Related Possessive Aggression: Learn to identify normal vs. abnormal possessive aggression and what advice to give to clients and identify risky advice being given.
  3. Behavior Medications 101: When to use medications, why we use them, how they work in general, and talking points when discussing medications with clients. This is not a talk about specific medications for specific disorders. This is intended to inform the entire staff on broad principles.

Monthly Fun Fact

The behavior fact may be an abstract of a study, a simple fun one-line sentence about a certain aspect of a dog or a cat’s behavior, definition of a behavior term, a case study etc.

"Rent" Our Behavior Technician for a Day

Our behavior technician, Deb Edwards is available to come to your office and train your staff on how to make vet visits less stressful for your patients in real time and with practical methods.

Learn More About Deb Edwards

What to Expect:

Our behavior technician will come to your clinic for 6 hours. The first hour she will walk through your clinic, observe flow, and observe how pets are weighed, examined, and discharged. Based on her observations, she will then demonstrate these tips with your patients, then teach your staff, and then help to coach as your staff implements the techniques/tips. The last hour of her time there will be spent typing up an action list of things discussed/taught and make a list of supplies that you should order.

In addition, she will be making recommendations on areas of learning opportunities specific to your staff that would require more time to learn. If you wish to pursue those opportunities listed, just reach out to us and we will send you details of what would be involved.

We have found that each clinic has different areas of learning opportunities and growth, so everything needs to be customized for each clinic.

More urban clinics must have parking available to the technician to take advantage of this service.

To schedule a training day and or learn more about the service and the fees associated with this service, please call (201) 503-7531 or email
