BEHAVIORAL COUNSELING

Is unwanted behavior making it difficult to bond with 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 at Ceres Veterinary Clinic can help restore peace and balance back into your home.

Understanding the Problem

The secret to overcoming animal behavior issues is identifying the problem. First, we must rule out any potential medical causes. Many ailments feature symptoms that can easily be mistaken for bad behavior. For example, a cat that urinates outside the litter box may not be acting out, but actually be experiencing a health issue.

With a clean bill of health, the next step is determining the behavior we’re dealing with. This is critical because in many cases, a bigger problem may manifest itself in smaller ways. For instance, destructive behavior when left alone may actually be a symptom of separation anxiety. We’ll work with you to figure out exactly 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 an appropriate diagnosis in hand, the last step is developing a strategy for overcoming the behavior problem once and for all. There are a variety of different ways we can approach a behavior issue. Whether it’s positive reinforcement, rewards or training, 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 the Ceres Veterinary Clinic team help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
