Behavioral Counseling

Behavioral Counseling

We want you to enjoy a happy, healthy, and meaningful bond with your pet for his or her lifetime. Our veterinarians and technicians are available to discuss with you many basic behavior issues. We can counsel you on housebreaking issues, chewing, puppy/kitten behaviors, senior dog issues, separation anxiety, feline inappropriate urination, and many other issues. Many behavioral consultations have to start with a physical exam and laboratory tests to make sure we are not dealing with a medical issue. After ruling out medical conditions, we can then offer suggestions that will help you change your pet’s problematic behavior. We can offer behavioral modification plans, which are sometimes combined with pharmacological intervention to aid your pet’s learning.

For more complicated or serious behavioral conditions, we can also refer you to a veterinary behavior specialist.
