Behavior Counseling

Did you know that behavioral problems are the number one reason animals are relinquished from their homes?

When a pet has behavioral problems, it can be very troubling for the pet owners. Failed attempts to correct the disruptive behavior can leave pet parents feeling powerless and frustrated. Many times, behavioral problems are not simply a training issue, and are beyond the scope of a local obedience class.

Some of the most common signs of behavioral problems include:

  • Aggression
  • Fear
  • Anxiety
  • Phobias
  • House-Soiling

If your pet is displaying any of these, other behavioral abnormalities, set up an appointment to have a behavioral consultation with your pet????????s doctor.

Why is it best to seek advice from your veterinarian?

It is important to understand that medical problems can contribute to behavioral problems in animals. Some behavioral issues may be caused by underlying diseases???????and pain can cause changes in your pet????????s demeanor. Together, you and your veterinarian can discuss the symptoms and behaviors you are observing in your pet, and can choose a method to best treat with or correct them.

While some behaviors may be easily corrected through obedience training, it is always important to first rule out any medical causes.

Call us today to schedule a behavior consultation with your veterinarian!
