Is undesirable behavior driving a wedge between you and your pet?
Whether it’s something basic, like a house training issue or a more serious concern, like aggression, unwanted pet behavior can be stressful for everyone. The experienced team at Breton Veterinary Hospital can help restore peace and balance back into your home.
The key to addressing animal behavior issues is identifying the problem. First, we must rule out any underlying medical causes. Many ailments have symptoms that can easily be mistaken for bad behavior. For instance, a cat that urinates outside the litter box may not be acting out, but actually be experiencing a health issue.
Once we’ve got a clean bill of health, the next step is determining the exact behavior we’re dealing with. This is critical because in many cases, a bigger problem may manifest itself in smaller ways. For example, destructive behavior when left alone may actually be caused by separation anxiety. We’ll work with you to determine precisely what the situation is so we can address it most effectively.
Some of the behavior issues we can assist with include:
With an accurate diagnosis in hand, the next step is developing a strategy for overcoming the behavior problem once and for all. There are a number of different ways we can address a behavior issue. Whether it’s positive reinforcement, rewards, training or something else, we’ll work with you to create a customized plan that gets results.
Don’t let unwanted behavior stand in the way of bonding with your four-legged friend. Give us a call and let us help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
