Behavioral Counseling at North Center Animal Hospital

We want to make sure you get the help you need if your pet is struggling with behavioral issues!

Pets can have or develop a wide array of behavioral issues, from housetraining issues to severe anxiety and aggression issues. Many behavioral issues can be triggered by a change in environment or the addition or loss of a human or furry family member. They can also develop after a traumatic event such as your pet getting lost, attacked or neglected. Behavioral issues can also arise as the result of a medical condition signifying that your pet is in pain or experiencing discomfort.

Regardless of the circumstances, our team at North Center Animal Hospital is here to help guide you towards helpful solutions. We realize that behavior issues can cause a lot of stress and problems within the home and want to make sure that we provide you with the support you and your pet need to overcome them.

Common reasons for a behavior consult include:

  • Anxiety
  • Lack of control/lack of obedience
  • Aggression
  • Destructive Habits
  • Inappropriate urination or defecation
  • Excessive vocalization/barking

When you bring your pet in for a consult we will discuss what problems you are experiencing and work to rule out and make sure there are no underlying medical issues at play. Once we have ruled out medical problems we will discuss possible training tips as well as potential medication that might be applicable. We are here to support you and your pet and make sure that you can continue a harmonious and happy relationship!
