Pet Behavioral Issues

If you are looking for answers to your pet’s behavior problems, we can help! Pets can have a wide variety of behavioral issues, from simple puppy housetraining problems or teaching a kitten to use the litter box, to more destructive problems such as separation anxiety, biting, food guarding or aggression. Even shyness can be a troubling behavior issue for a dog.

Some pet behaviors that are perfectly normal for that animal’s species can be frustrating to humans, like house soiling, cats scratching furniture or dogs barking excessively. Behavior problems can seriously jeopardize the joy of the human-animal relationship or, even worse, bring it to a tragic end.

Other problematic behaviors can be triggered by a change in the pet’s environment like moving to a new dwelling or the addition of a new [human or furry] family member. They can arise following a traumatic event like the pet getting lost, attacked or neglected. Or they may simply be a manifestation of the animal’s natural maturation and aging processes.

We are here to help!

Our veterinary team can help owners with most pet behavior issues. The first step in controlling or changing these behaviors is to discuss them with us to rule out any medical component. Once a medical component is ruled out, we identify reasons for their pet’s behavior and then find realistic options for treatment by positive behavior modification and/or medication. By making an accurate diagnosis and suggesting appropriate interventions, we strive to improve both your pet’s quality of life and yours.

Please give us a call today to schedule an appointment if your pet is experiencing any behavior problems. Remember, we can help!
