Understanding and Addressing Pet Behavior Issues

Understanding your pet’s behavior is the first step toward effective intervention. During an initial consultation, we conduct a thorough assessment, which includes a detailed history of your pet’s behavior, environment, and any previous training or interventions. We may also perform a physical examination to rule out any medical conditions that could be contributing to the behavior problems. Common issues we address include aggression, anxiety, destructive behaviors, inappropriate elimination, excessive barking, and phobias. By gathering comprehensive information, we can accurately diagnose the behavioral issues and create a tailored treatment plan that addresses both the symptoms and underlying causes.
