Behavioral Counseling

Many pets are given up to shelters due to behavior problems. Some of the most common behavior problems are aggressive behavior, separate anxiety, inappropriate urination, These behaviors create difficult decisions for pet owners. We would like to help your family decide if your pets behavior can be modified.

Our doctors can consult with you to discuss your pet’s behavior to determine if there are any underlying illness, stressful changes or need for behavior modification. Changes in diet/ lifestyle for the pet, professional training, homeopathic therapies and medications may be opted for.

If you’re concerned about or bothered by an aspect of your pet’s behaviour, we can help. Our expert can work with you and your pet to stop or change the behaviour. Many aggressive, fearful, or inappropriate behaviours in dogs and cats can be modified through a combination of desensitization and counter-conditioning. These techniques can have dramatic results when applied properly. In some cases, medication can also help. Contact us for an appointment if you’d like to consult with our expert.
