Is your pet driving you crazy?
This Saturday, September 15th  pet owners can get free advice about behavioral problems at Centennial Olympic Park. 

Veterinarian and Pet Behavior Specialist Dr. Debra Horwitz is teaming up with more than 50 Atlanta Vets and rescue organizations for a free event called Keep the Love Alive.

It's a nationwide bus tour and pet fair aimed at solving behavioral problems that often cause people to give away problem pets.   "Professionals from all over the Atlanta area will be here to talk about their practices, to answer questions about anything:   behavior problems and medical questions," said Horowitz.

One of the Pet Fair's sponsors makes pheremone based supplements designed to calm anxious or even aggressive pets. The supplements are administered in spray, collar or diffuser forrm.

"They help dogs who have separation anxiety, are worried about thunderstorms, maybe bark too much. There are similar products for cats, said Horwitz.

Saturday's event also includes adoptions from the Atlanta Humane Society, Paws Atlanta and Atlanta Labrador Rescue.
The Pet Fair runs from 10 am to 3pm.
