Behavioral issues can be distressing and frustrating to owners and pets alike. Thankfully, we are able to help! Dr. Stolt, one of our veterinarians who takes a particular interest in treating behavioral issues, offers behavioral consults which consist of a detailed examination of the pet as well as a thorough discussion of the issues with owners. We will perform any testing needed to rule out underlying medical causes for these problems and then formulate a detailed plan for modifying the behavior. Sometimes, medication may be employed to help with resolution.
Our doctors will work with owners as a team to assist in the implementation of the plan. Among the behavioral challenges we can treat are:
- inappropriate urination/defecation
- scratching furniture
- thunderstorm phobia
- noise phobia
- separation anxiety
- cognitive issues/confusion
Behavioral health is a huge component of the overall well-being of our pets and our relationships with them. Let us help you ensure the best-possible behavior from your beloved pet.
