Behavioral Counseling

Is unwanted behavior driving a wedge between you and your pet?

Whether it’s a simple house-training issue or something more concerning, like aggression, unwanted pet behavior can be stressful for everyone. Fortunately, the experienced team at Fairview Drive Pet Hospital is here to restore peace and balance back into your home.

Understanding the Problem

The key to overcoming unwanted animal behavior lies in identifying the actual issue at hand. First, we must rule out any potential medical causes. We do this because many ailments have symptoms that can easily be mistaken for bad behavior. For instance, a cat that eliminates 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, less obvious ways. For example, destructive behavior when left alone may actually be a symptom of separation anxiety. We’ll work with you and your pet to determine precisely what the situation is so we can address it most effectively.

Some common behavioral 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 last step is developing a strategy for overcoming the behavior problem once and for all. There are several different ways we can approach 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 four-legged family member. Give Fairview Drive Pet Hospital a call and let us help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
