Pet Counseling

Our hospital offers counseling for issues that may be affecting your pet. These issues could range from a pet being overweight and needing nutritional counseling to changes in behavior that require behavior modification. If your pet is experiencing pain, house soiling, irritability, aggression, anxiety or compulsive behaviors, consult your pet’s veterinarian. Our team is able to help find the root cause of your pet’s problem and devise a treatment plan. If the problem is beyond our staff’s ability to treat, we will refer you to another trusted and trained professional for assistance.
