Whether it’s something as simple as a house training issue or a more serious concern, like aggression, unwanted pet behavior can be stressful for everyone. The experienced team at The Corner Vet can help restore peace and balance back into your home.
The key to overcoming animal behavior issues is accurately identifying the problem. First, we must rule out any potential 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 may actually be experiencing a health issue.
Once we’ve got a clean bill of health, the next step is pinpointing 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 a sign of 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 problems we can provide assistance with include:
With a proper diagnosis in hand, the last step is developing a strategy for overcoming the behavior problem once and for all. There are a number of different ways to approach 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 get in the way of bonding with your pet. Give The Corner Vet a call and let us help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
