Behavior Counseling

Behavior problems are the number one reason that people give up their pet. Often, something that appears as a behavior problem has its roots in a medical condition. The best examples of this is a cat that is urinating outside of the box or a housebroken dog who suddenly starts to have urinary accidents in the house. These behaviors often have their roots in a medical issue. 


Our veterinarians and nurses can help you to recognize and treat behavior issues. We will work closely with you to develop a behavior plan that best meets your pets needs. This usually involves making changes in the home environment, instituting behavior modification and training techniques, and sometimes using medications. For more complex cases, especially aggressive behaviors, we may refer you to a local boardcertified animal behaviorist.
