Is unwanted behavior causing a rift between you and your pet?

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 atBrookville Veterinary Hospital can help restore peace and balance back into your home.

Understanding the Problem

The key to overcoming animal behavior issues is identifying the actual problem. First, we must rule out any potential medical causes. Many health conditions have symptoms that can 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 established 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 issue may manifest itself in smaller ways. For example, destructive behavior when left alone may actually be a sign of a more significant problem, like separation anxiety. We’ll work with you to pinpoint precisely what the situation is so we can address it most effectively.

Some of the behavior problems we can assist with include:

  • House training
  • Excessive barking
  • Jumping
  • Digging
  • Biting
  • Destructive behavior
  • Aggression
  • Fear/anxiety

A Plan That Gets Results

With a proper diagnosis in hand, the final 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 customize a plan that gets results.

Don’t let unwanted behavior stand in the way of bonding with your animal friend. Give Brookville Veterinary Hospital a call and let us help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
